Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish

In September 2010 the Catholic communities in Benchill, Woodhouse Park and Peel Hall became one parish. A consultation took place between all three church communities and it was agreed that the new parish would be called Our Lady Queen of Peace.

‘A community of people united in Christ and guided by the Holy Spirit in their pilgrimage towards the Father’s Kingdom, bearers of a message of salvation for all of humanity.’
