Next year marks the 160th anniversary of the Apparitions in Lourdes. In anticipation of this important date we have been undertaking a major programme of interior Church redecoration, including replacement of carpeting, new sound-system and lighting improvements etc. The new picture window above the Tabernacle features our joint Parish Patrons - Our Lady of Lourdes and St Bernadette and was commissioned from Brendan Berry a well-known Scottish artist whose work graces Glasgow Catherdal and is found in parishes across the country.

Saturday  3rd  
Due to the sheer number of children from our Cluster Parishes being Confirmed this spring, it has been decided to have two celebrations on Saturday 3rd rather than one which could have exceeded the maximum permissible attendance / seating capacity at St Francis Xavier’s Church. Archbishop Cushley will thus administer the Sacrament of Confirmation to children from St Francis Xavier’s and St Mary of the Angels, Camelon at 12noon and to children from Our Lady of Lourdes & St Bernadette’s, Larbert and St Anthony’s, Polmont at 2pm.
Social Committee
This year the Senior Citizen's Summer outing will be held on the 3rd June.Venue is Gretna Retail outlet and on to Moffat for the meal. The bus will leave at 11am and return at approx 8pm. Please add your name to the list at the back of the Church if you wish to attend.
