History

 

Mother St Mary

The convent of Our Lady of Fidelity was established in 1848.  The Foundress, Mother Saint Mary, came to England with eighteen sisters upon the outbreak of the Revolution of that year to look after the many homeless children suffering from the Irish potato famine.  The sisters founded the first Catholic Orphanage in England since the Reformation.

By 1952, the Orphanage had closed and was replaced by Our Lady's Secondary Modern School.  This school closed in 1982.

After much research of children's needs in the community today and a major fund-raising campaign, Saint Mary's Family Centre was opened by the Congregation of Our Lady of Fidelity in November 1992 by our patron the late Lord Weatherill.
