Parish Information

Inside2Welcome to our website.  We hope you like what you see and that you find what you are looking for. 

 If not please feel free to contact us via the Contact Page.

 Our Church was first opened for worship in 1912 and last year we celebrated it's 100th Anniversary in October with a visit from the Bishop of Salford.

Our Parish Priest is Father Xavier HO, O.S.B. and he lives in the Presbytery on the corner of Brownedge Road and Wateringpool Lane, Lostock Hall.  The Parish Office is normally open from 9am to 12 noon Monday to Friday.

The Church itself is on Lourdes Avenue and our Tower can be seen from any of the approach roads to Lostock hall and will guide you to us.  

Next door to the church is our well maintained Cemetery and next to that is Our Lady & Saint Gerard Majella's Primary School.


At the rear of the Church on what used to be the Presbytery Garden is our Bowling Green.   The Saint Gerards Bowling Club play in several local leagues.

The green opened on 3rd April 1983 following two or more years of planning and hard work by members and other volunteers.

New members are always welcome.
