Welcome to the website of
Our Lady Immaculate & Saint Cuthbert's Church
The Roman Catholic parish of Our Lady Immaculate & Saint Cuthbert
serves the town of Crook and the surrounding area. The parish
is part of the Diocese
of Hexham and Newcastle and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Liverpool. Its home is a beautiful church designed by Pugin and is close to the town centre.
Responsibility for the running of the parish lies with Reverend Gordon Ryan. He is also responsible for running the parishes of St.Thomas of Canterbury, Wolsingham and St. Joseph's, Tow Law.
The intention of this website is to share with you our beautiful Church in Crook and let you know what is going on by explaining to you all aspects of our parish life and the community around us. Included in "Our Church" page is a link to a brief history of Our Lady Immaculate & St. Cuthbert's if you would like to read how and when the church was built.
