St Mark, Pendlebury, Roman Catholic
It was founded in 1923.
Until 1923, Pendlebury was identified with Swinton as a parish and then a beginning was made by Fr. J. V. Murphy. A new church of simple design was opened in 1926. Fr. Peter Sheahan was appointed here in 1928, and struggled very hard to improve the parish, making many sacrifices and living very austerely to reduce the debt. His health was undermined and he was obliged to retire in 1940. Fr. William B. Guinan, Fr. Raymund Manning, and Fr. James Power have been parish priests during the last decade.
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.
