Who we are

WELCOME TO ST JOHN BOSCO PARISH

The parish warmly welcomes you to our website:

https://www.sjb-easterhouse.com/

which we have opened to coincide with the First Anniversary of our coming into being, as the Parish of St. John Bosco - on Pentecost Sunday (4th June 2016).

We aim to maintain our site, as not only a source of information for those who visit, but also of inspiration.

As we pray that everything we do, begins with God’s initiative - is done for and in the name of Jesus, his Son, and will be brought to a fruitful conclusion by the power of his Holy Spirit.

We hope that on your visit to our site, you will find all the information about us that you are looking for, and more.

History of St Clare Easterhouse Glasgow

PARISH HISTORY

Amalgamation of the two parishes in Easterhouse

St. Benedict’s Parish and St. Clare’s Parish

St John Bosco Parish was formed from the amalgamation of the two RC Parishes in Easterhouse -

Members of the Salesian Priests of St. John Bosco had provided spiritual and pastoral ministry to the Catholic community within the two parishes in Easterhouse for a quarter of a century, until August 2015.
The Salesian Order then had to withdraw the three Priests - who served at that time - from the two parishes; and Bishop Toal of Motherwell Diocese then appointed one Priest to replace them.

We still have Salesian Sisters of St. John Bosco, within our parish community, who live in the Convent within the grounds of St. Benedict’s Church. One of whom has continued to act as a Pastoral Assistant to our Priest.

On Pentecost Sunday 2016, Bishop Toal conjoined the two parishes into one new parish - to be known thereafter, as the Parish of St. John Bosco. This choice of name had met with universal approval within the two parishes.

The churches are still known as St. Benedict’s, and St. Clare’s respectively - but the Registers for the Sacraments in the two former parishes were closed, and a new Register for the Sacrament of Baptism; Confirmation; Ordination; and Matrimony, in St. John Bosco was opened from that day - 15th May 2016.

The Parish Priest resides in what had been St. Clare’s chapel house.
