There has been a Catholic community here from earliest times. Our current parish was founded in 1912 from Saint Helen's Parish in Westcliff. It is dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes & Saint Joseph. The church is a noble tribute to the generosity, hard work and sacrifice of generations of clergy and faithful.

We are a thriving parish, through which the mission of the Church brings the Gospel of Christ and the fullness of Christian Truth to the people of Leigh-on-Sea. Welcome to our community — may God bless you!
