Our History

The Church of St Andrew was built in 1975 for the 100 or so Catholic families in the North Baddesley area who until then had previously worshipped at the Church of St Joseph in Romsey.

St Andrew’s was blessed and opened by the then Bishop of Portsmouth, the Rt Reverend Derek Worlock.  The Bishop acknowledged the support given by the Montfort Fathers and, in particular was thankful that the order had kindly provided a Montfort Father to become the first parish priest – Fr Owen Cannon.

The Church was completely refurbished in 2009 under the guidance of then parish priest Fr George Lyons.
