St Catherine's is an established and thriving Catholic parish on School Lane in Didsbury, part of the Diocese of Salford www.salforddiocese.net.
The Church shares a space with a primary school
(St Catherine's) and a Community Centre. Together they sustain a diverse community which includes people of all ages and backgrounds.
The St Catherine's community prides itself in its inclusivity and welcome to new people. Our priest is Father John Hitchen and the parish sits within the diocese of Salford. It also proudly supports The Barlow RC High School.
Visitors are welcome at all our services and Parish Groups are always seeking new members and volunteers. Please come along and join us. Also please get in touch with your comments, feedback and suggestions about this website using the form below.
COMMUNITY SPONSORSHIP GROUP: Fundraising for this scheme, to resettle a family displaced by the crisis in Syria, is ongoing. The Parish Group organising the scheme are very grateful for your contributions.
The minutes of the last meeting on 16th May can be found below. There is good news that a property has been secured for the resettlement of a family. The Group therefore has to submit to the Home Office detail of what it will put in its Welcome Pack. If anyone has any suggestions/ideas to include or would like to volunteer to write Section 1 (the Welcome to Manchester), please contact Father John or Greg Clark.
