This is Leek’s only Roman Catholic Church. Designed by Albert Vicars of London in the Gothic Style and was constructed between 1886-87 before it opened in May 1887.
The land that church stands on was donated by J.H. Sperling (the father of the church’s first priest, A.M. Sperling).
Most of the stain glass windows were manufactured by Mayer & Co of Munich & London and the few remaining windows were produced by Daniels & Fricker of London.
The Church was given a Grade II listing on 17 December 1992.
