Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Parish is based in the heart of Wauchope, NSW and is a beacon for those who share the Catholic faith. As part of the Lismore Diocese, we are a diverse church where everyone is welcome to listen, learn and celebrate the Eucharist together. We encourage each other to live our lives in Christ’s name and to be a source of inspiration for the Catholic community. Our Parish continues to be a place of worship, teaching and pastoral care for visitors, locals and those living in surrounding areas.
There are 5 primary schools in our area. St Joseph’s Primary School, Wauchope is the local Catholic school which feeds into St Joseph’s Regional College in Port Macquarie. The public schools in our area include: Beechwood Public School; Huntingdon Public School; Long Flat Public School, and; Wauchope Public School.
The Parish strives to provide scripture to the local public schools and the Parish Priest works collaboratively with St Joseph’s Staff to ensure the most effective contribution to the programmes of the school and also develops a sacramental programme which continues to benefit children from all schools every year.
