With the absence of banks in the village, and COVID handling of money - we have joined the Diocese with the contactless donation system called DONA.

There is a stand in the porch of Our Lady of Lourdes Church to receive contactless payments.  Please use the hand sanitiser before using. 

You can select the amount you wish to donate and simply tap your card for contactless giving.

If you are able to gift aid - this will take a couple of minutes initially to encode your details (easy to follow prompts)  and only has to be set up the once.  You are also able to now donate via this link.  Thank you very much.

Parish Offertory Support

Thank you for considering donating using Gift Aid. If you are a UK tax payer and donate to a charity, the government has a system that allows charities to claim an amount equivalent to the tax that you would have paid on your donation. It doesn't cost you anything and doesn't affect your tax status. The Diocese is a registered charity and Our Lady of Lourdes Church can claim this government funding. For the Parish to be able to claim this, we need to record the amount that has been donated. At the moment you would need to be paying by Standing Order so that we are able to identify and record your donation. (We can record cash donations by completion of a Gift Aid envelope but during Covid19 this is not available). If you are already donating by standing order just complete the Gift Aid form and give it to

Fr Benny or the office. Please do this for your Parish, it doesn’t cost you anything more. The Standing Order form and Gift Aid form are below.

There are different ways you can help support your Parish.

Option 1 Standing Order - A big thank you to everyone who has recently asked to sign up, and for those who continue with their standing order.

Please click on the links below - either for Our Lady of Lourdes Church or St Patrick's, complete and post to Parish Office, Eastfield, Steyning Road, Rottingdean BN2 7GA or hand to Fr Benny to bring to the office - or set up easily on line with a debit card under Option 3... the JustGiving

St Patrick's  -  Sunday 9am Mass

We are going to attempt  not using the Eventbrite system for the time being - and monitoring how full we get.  If we feel we need to revert back to Eventbrite the link is below.

For the time being it is not necessary to request tickets.

In case we need to revert back to tickets for 9am Mass on Sundays at St Patrick's parishioners will then need to book a free ticket through Eventbrite to confirm attendance for the limited indoor seating.  Please follow the following link...

No need to print your Eventbrite ticket, give your name at the church door to be ticked off the list of attendees.  If you haven’t had an email re your Mass booking, then you aren’t booked and on the list for that Sunday.  You can book several Sundays at a time and on Eventbrite you can also cancel a particular booking.
