Are you a parishioner, new to the Parish of St John XXIII or a visitor? If so, you are very welcome! 

We are part of the partnership of St Benedict in the
Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle.
The four partnership churches in the parish are, Our Blessed Lady Immaculate, Washington Village, St Bede's, Usworth, St John Boste, Oxclose  & Our Lady Queen of Peace, Penshaw.

We also work closely with our Partnership church of St Joseph, Birtley.

However we strive to be one community.

Welcome To Our Parish!
