The Parish of the Durham Martyrs
In 2013 the parish of St Bede and Our Lady of Mercy and St Godric was merged with the parish of St Joseph to officially become the Parish of the Durham Martyrs. We had our inaugural Mass as one parish in St Leonard's Catholic School and continue to worship together there as one community for our Christmas and Easter Masses. Our parish priest is Fr. Colm Hayden.
Our parish prayer was written in honour of our first Mass as one community and it is recited during all our Masses and Services.
