Church History

It was founded in 1941. The current building opened in 1959.
Perhaps the name Burnage suggested obscurely a dedication to Bernard of Clairvaux. The young parish promises well and will, no doubt, have a glorious future, especially if St. Catherine's, Didsbury, migrates somewhat to make way in the Withington direction. The chapel-of-ease to Levenshulme was opened in 1941, with Fr. John McNulty in charge. Since his departure in 1946, Fr. J. V. Reynolds and Fr. Robert Conway have been appointed. The future development of the parish will be watched with interest.

Taken from "Salford Diocese and its Catholic past", a survey by Charles A. Bolton, a Priest of the above Diocese. Published 1950 on the First Centenary for the Diocese of Salford.
