Church History

It was founded in 1869. The current church building was opened on 25 June 1963.
Fr. Thomas Twomey from St. Anne's, Ashton-under-Lyne, opened a school-chapel here, but for the first twelve years Denton was dependent on the mother parish. In 1889 the parish became independent. Fr. Twomey went to Radcliffe and Fr. John Welch, who became well-known later as Rector of Mount Carmel, Salford, came here in 1895. Fr. H. Schurgers and Fr. P. Joyner were here for a short time. Fr. P. Prendergast was appointed in 1912. During more recent years Fr. W. Moran and Fr. A. Stack have been the parish priests of this busy industrial parish.

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.
