Catholics in Glossop celebrate our faith in the two parishes of All Saints and St. Mary Crowned.

All Saints Catholic Church is on Church Street in Old Glossop, opposite Hall Meadow Road. 

It was built by the Howard family in 1836 and originally used as a private chapel, the family’s regular place of worship.  The church is constructed from local stone in the elegant Georgian style and was recently refurbished.

St Mary Crowned Catholic Church is on Sumner Street in Glossop, opposite Shaw Street.  It was built by local mill owner Francis Sumner in 1882 for use by the Catholic workers in his mills. 

The church is the largest non-cathedral church in the north of England.  It is built from local stone and has many architectural features.     

Details of weekday Masses and other services are shown on the parish Newsletter which is available in the churches and on the website.
