CONTACTLESS COLLECTIONS

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.

PETITION: That the Government Does Not Reduce Overseas Aid:

https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/561068

There are suggestions that the Government is planning to reduce its commitment to giving 0.7% of GDP as overseas aid. We want to keep this foreign aid and help the world's poor.  Please sign the petition. At 10,000 signatures the Government will respond to the petition. At 100,00 the petition will be considered for debate. Thank you.

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 two 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.

Option 2  JustGiving


Our parishes are heavily reliant on offertory donations. At this challenging time, when we are unable to attend Mass in church, you can continue to support your priest and parish by donating your offertory contribution online.

Many of us are really missing being at church

Our Diocesan church family includes more than 70 parishes, offering spiritual enrichment and support at every stage of our lives. While many of our priests currently stream Mass online, their parishes are struggling financially. Our churches depend on cash donations for 50% of their income on average, in some cases this reliance can be as high as 90%. At this difficult time, when we are not able to attend Mass in church, you can support your parish by donating your offertory online through this JustGiving Page.

Please follow the guidance below:

1. When making your donation, please leave a message to indicate the name of your church or parish as well as its location. For example: I would like my donation to go to "Our  Lady of Lourdes, Rottingdean" or to "St Patrick's Church, Woodingdean". This will ensure your donation is allocated to the correct parish.

2. Gift Aid helps our parishes to thrive. Please Gift Aid your donation, if you are eligible.

3. You will be asked by JustGiving whether you would like to share your details with the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton. Telling us who you are really helps, as it means we can share details of your donation with your parish.

Your details will be kept private and confidential. We comply with data protection regulation and the fundraising regulator code of practice. We will never sell your data to third parties. We will use your details to administer your gifts, occasionally send you news on the work of the Church, and give you the opportunity to support appeals. You can read our full privacy policy: https://www.dabnet.org/ContentDocuments/842.pdf

Thank you for your generosity of heart.

The Prayer of St Alphonsus

Communion Spiritual prayer

St Patrick's is now open for Sunday 9am Masses.


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... 


https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/st-patricks-sunday-mass-tickets-120007661145


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.
