A warm welcome to our Parish

Welcome to Our Lady of Lourdes & St Swithun Parish.

We are a vibrant community and come together to worship our Lord Jesus Christ in our two churches of Our Lady of Lourdes and St Swithun’s here in Southsea.

We are part of the Diocese of Portsmouth with our Bishop Philip Egan. We are a very friendly group of people who come together in our two Parish churches to worship God and listen to God’s word. We are an active community that is served by Father Marcin Drabik and a great parish council and many other people in our Parish.

We are linked with our Roman Catholic Primary School, St Swithun’s and have a number of Religious communities affiliated to us too.

You will find a large, mixed and varied congregation who participate in all sorts of parish activities and functions. We have many different groups and we even run a Parish Film club.

We invite you to come and share in our beautiful worship of God through our various services and ministries.  We ask that you have a look at our website, where hopefully you will find something of interest that sparks your thoughts further about our Lord.

If you have a special intention or want a prayer sent then please feel free to ask us. You can do this by adding your request in the form below.

With Best wishes and God’s Blessing Fr Marcin
