The present church building dates back to 1849 but its history dates back far beyond, to the days when the Catholic Church was persecuted in England, to secret masses at Towneley Hall and the time of priest holes.
There eventually came a time towards the end of the 18th Century when Catholics were tolerated and in the early 19th Century a chapel was built at Burnley Wood, which became the direct predecessor of today's St Mary of the Assumption church.
During the 19th and into the 20th Centuries the parish grew and nowadays St Mary's is a lively and outgoing parish with lots going on - see our Parish Groups page.
The next Healing Mass at St Mary’s is on Saturday 21st December at 12 Noon. This will be followed by lunch in the parish rooms.
