Church History

The Catholic Chapel is a plain but substantial limestone building in Ulverston Road. Externally it presents no ecclesiastical features, except the emblem of Redemption on the apex of the gable. The chapel, dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary, was erected in 1879, at a cost of about £1,800, towards which the Bishop of Liverpool (Dr. O'Reilly) subscribed £1,200. The building consists of two storeys, the upper one being used as a chapel, and the lower one as a school, which is under the charge of Miss M. Morrin. As no resident priest has yet been appointed, the care of the mission is ministerially under Barrow.

from Mannex's directory of Furness & Cartmel, 1882

The congregation moved in 1981 into the former St Margaret's Church, recently vacated by the Church of England. The original church was located across the road.
