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.


Following the announcement in February of the 18 new partnerships across the Diocese we are now able to provide more details about how these partnerships will work. The document 'Partnership Guidelines - First Steps' sets out some key information that will help partnerships to get up and running. Please see the link to the Diocesan project Partnership Guidelines to read about the latest update regarding getting our partnership up and running. Pentecost was the day when the Partnerships were officially launched and each partnership was given a name. Our partnership is area E2 THE ESCOMB PARTNERSHIP. If you would like to see which churches are in our partnership, please click on Escomb

The website is intended to be as informative as possible and everyone is encouraged to contact us with any suggestion which may be of help to our community.

We are particularly keen to hear from any former parishioners who are living out of the area and details of how to contact us are contained within the website.

OUR LADY IMMACULATE & ST. CUTHBERT'S CEMETERY: if anyone would like information about existing graves in the cemetery, please email olsc.cemetery@gmail.com for further details.
