Sawston has been an active centre of Catholicism in this region for a very long time. Sawston Hall was for many centuries the focal point of Catholic activity and remained steadfast during the troubled times of the Counter-Reformation.
The present Church building is over 50 years old (refurbished in 2010). In 2007, our community became part of the large parish of Our Lady and the English Martyrs, Cambridge. Although we are served by all the priests of the parish, Canon John Minh has special responsibility for the Sawston Catholic community.
Our Lady Of Lourdes is a friendly and enthusiastic community which celebrates its range of parishioners from young and old. It has a strong family ethos as many people have grown up through the Church and are now bringing their own children to church. There is a firm community spirit with all of the work in the community being done by volunteers. Many people visit us throughout the year and we hope everyone feels welcome, either at Mass or in one of our other celebration.
