From humble beginnings, the worshipping community of Catholics in Cambourne has grown to over a hundred and fifty people who meet each week on Saturday evenings, at 5pm, to celebrate Mass together at the shared church building in Cambourne.
A parish of our own
On Tuesday 2nd January 2018, Bishop Alan Hopes erected the parish of Our Lady of Lourdes and St John Fisher. Our Lady of Lourdes is located in Sawston; here in Cambourne, we are the Saint John Fisher community. Being a parish comes with many opportunities and many responsibilities. May God bless our newborn parish and continue to spread the fire of his love in our communities.
Fr John has prepared a full programme of activities and events for Lent and Easter: see here.
Knights of St Columba
The Knights of St Columba are holding several competitions over the Easter period: see here for details.
- Patronal feast – There will be a coach trip to the cathedral on 17th February to celebrate our patronal feast of Our Lady of Lourdes. Click here for details.
