St Mary & St John Bosco

the Parish of St Mary and St John Bosco, Leicester.

About St Mary and St John Bosco Parish

Once two separate parishes St Mary and St John Bosco are now a single community served by our parish priest Rev Stephan Foster.

We are part of a group of churches which make up the Leicester East Deanery and in turn our Deanery is part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Nottingham.

Parishioners who make up or Churches come from Wigston, Blaby, Countesthorpe and some of the smaller villages in South Leicester, Glen Parva,  Eyres Monsell and the Saffron Lane area of the City of Leicester.

There is a strong sense of parish community with our Christian values at the heart of activities in our Church, Parish, and Schools.

We have a total of five Masses in our parish during the weekend, one of these being celebrated each Saturday morning at Glen Parva Young Offenders Institute where our parish priest has the privilege of being Chaplain.

Mass is celebrated regularly during the week in our churches and on days when there is no Mass there is usually a Eucharistic service.

We have very close links with our two local Catholic Primary Schools, Holy Cross and St John Fisher and our Parish Priest is a member of the Board of Governors for our two Catholic Secondary Schools St Paul's and English Martyrs.

We have a wide range of social activities which take place in our Parish Halls and you can find out more about these by following the links to the right of this page.

We also have a thriving Parish community with many active Parish groups and ministries involved in liturgy, music, planning, maintenance, youth work, RCIA and SVP to mention just a few.
