St Mary's & St John Bosco

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

About the Parishes of St Mary's and St John Bosco

Once two separate parishes St Mary’s and St John Bosco are now a joint 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.

Four Masses are celebrated in our Parish during the weekend so there is every opportunity for Parishioners to be involved as part of our worshiping community.

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 Parish ministries involved in liturgy, music, planning, maintenance, youth work, RCIA and SVP to mention just a few.

If you want to find out more about us follow the links at the bottom of this page to St Mary’s or St John Bosco.
