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.

This site provides historical information about churches, other places of worship and cemeteries. It has no connection with the churches themselves. For current information you should contact them directly.
