Marist Fathers (Society of Mary), 1925 - 2018

The Parish of Our Lady of Lourdes was founded in 1925 when the Marist Fathers bought the large house – Hop Villa – on Cottingham Road where they opened Marist College, a Catholic secondary school for boys. On the left side of Hop Villa there was a small stable block which was to become the first parish church under their care with the name of Our Lady of Lourdes. In 1957 the new church was built and consecrated under the name of Our Lady of Lourdes and St Peter Chanel. St Peter Chanel, the first Marist martyr, had been canonised in 1954.

2018 onwards – a new beginning

In July of 2018, the Marist Fathers handed the parish into the care of the Diocese. The parish continues today with the church and parish house and is home to people from a wide variety of backgrounds and nationalities. With the grace of God, it will continue to be a church where everyone is welcome.

The Church also provides Chaplaincy to the University.

At Endsleigh Holy Child, we are really lucky to have two parish priests: Fr William and Fr Peter. We all enjoy attending mass and joining together with our priests and our Parish community and can't wait to do this again soon. When we need an expert to help us to learn about our faith, we know that we can ask our priests and they will come in and talk to us.

The Spiritual life at Endsleigh Holy Child is greatly supported by Fr William and Fr Peter. Alex, who was the Pastoral Assistant, has now left our parish and is soon to begin his training for the priesthood. We hold him very much in our prayers and look forward to seeing him again.
