Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, Sunday Mass & Schedule Times, Singapore

The church is the primary place of worship for the local Tamil Catholic community. However, in the last few years, the church has also serviced Catholics from all racial backgrounds. Masses are held in English and Tamil throughout the weekend, weekdays, and public holidays.

The sacraments offered include Holy Communion, adult and infant baptism, confirmation, Holy Matrimony, reconciliation, communion for the homebound, and anointing of the sick. The ministries include Catechetical Ministry, Hospitality Ministry, Communion Ministry, Lector Ministry, Music Ministry, Altar Services, St. Vincent de Paul, Legion of Mary, and Migrant Welfare.

The Lourdes Hall of Repose is a sacred place for the departed and is open to all Catholics and Christians.

Also known as the Tamil Church or the Indian Church, its design utilises neo-Gothic architecture, which takes inspiration from a building of the same name in Lourdes, France. Some of its distinct features include the lancet-shaped doors, spires, crockets, elegant cornices, and a beautiful rose window with an image of Our Lady of Lourdes.

Other prominent features include the stained-glass windows, which portray the 15 Mysteries of the Holy Rosary; life-sized statues of Saint Bernadette and the Blessed Virgin Mary, and an angel blowing a trumpet above the porch.

The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes is located at 50 Ophir Road in Singapore.
