This Sunday, 22nd April, one of our parishioners ,Celia Oxley, is running the Southampton 10k and her husband Peter is running the Half Marathon. She have been a member of the community at Our Lady of Lourdes for just over 39 years, her first mass was on Palm Sunday 1979 when she had just returned from my honeymoon. She have been involved in the music ministry and been a regular reader for most of that time. The parish has supported her family through all life’s ups and downs over the years and as a thank you they would like to raise some money towards the upkeep of Our Lady of Lourdes. They would like to ask the parish community to sponsor them for their runs on Sunday. Celia will be at the back of Our Lady of Lourdes on Saturday, after the last hymn, to take your money and someone will be at the back of St Swithuns after the 10.15am mass on Sunday.
Peter and Celia both thank you for all your support!
