Church History

It was founded in 1928. The current building opened in 1957.
Bishop Henshaw divided this parish from Withington in 1929. Fr. Charles Wilkin built a school and hall, which serves as a temporary church. A fine site has been obtained on which to build a new church and house. This project will involve a slight revision of parish boundaries, and will allow for development of the Burnage 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.
