The Transfiguration of Our Lord:
Fresco by Aidan Hart

Our Lady of Lourdes

The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes is situated in Cardigan Road in the heart of one of Leeds' students' residential areas. It was built in the 1920's under the auspices of the Jesuits, but after the Jesuit Fathers moved out in 1947, the church came under the control of the diocese. We are privileged to have this large church in which to worship, and as with St Urban's, it has been beautifully adorned with a fresco by Aidan Hart - this time of The Transfiguration of Our Lord - see image on right.

This fresco is of immense proportions, measuring 9.5 metres in height, and 5.5 metres across. It was completed in January 2012, and is situated on the back wall of the church. It serves not only as an impressive backdrop to the altar and tabernacle, but also as a focus for prayer and meditation.

We are also fortunate in having a Church Hall at Our Lady, and one of its regular uses is as a venue for feeding the homeless on Friday and Sunday evenings. This venture is supported by one extra collection per month in both churches, and by private donations. If you would like to help or to contribute to this worthwhile cause, please give Father Michael a call on 0113 2259751.

There is currently one Sunday Mass at Our Lady, and usually there is a Mass on Friday evenings at 7:00pm, preceded by Eucharistic Adoration and Benediction at 6:30pm. The church has wheelchair access ramps, and is fitted with an induction loop for hearing aids.

You are very welcome to join us for Mass at Our Lady of Lourdes, and we look forward to welcoming you in person to our church as we embark upon this Year of Faith.
