Church History

It was founded in 1936.

 

St. Richard's chapel-of-ease came into existence and was solemnly opened by Bishop Henshaw on December 20, 1936.

(1947/48) St. Richard's Chapel now became the centre of a new parish, to be called St. Richard's. This was finally decided upon by his Lordship the Bishop, who has appointed Fr. George Catterall, D.D., L.C.L., to take charge of the new 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.
