About Us

Welcome to St Austin's &

English Martyrs Parish Church


St Austin's has been providing a place of worship for Christians in Wakefield since it opened in 1828. In 1932 a new school was built in the new parish of English Martyrs and Mass initially celebrated in the school hall. this provided a place of worship for the people of the newly built estate of Lupset. The Parish of St Martin de Porres in Wakefield came about as a result of the diocesan reorganisation of the two parishes into one. Now the churches combine to provide a vibrant and welcoming community. Twp primary schools and a Catholic college are supported by the parish.  In these web pages you will find out more about the parish as well as keeping up to date on events. our facebook page will also keep you informed.
