About Us

Welcome to our beautiful parish of Our Lady Help of Christians in Luton.  We are a vibrant, active Parish that is made up of over 70 different nationalities, and whose purpose is to bring the love of Christ to everyone we encounter, and come together to worship God, buildup his Church and help each other to one day become Saints. 

Everyone is welcome at our Parish.  As Saint Augustine says, "the church is not a museum for saints, but a hospital for sinners"

A little history of our beautful church building.

It was founded in 1845 and the present church was built in 1910.

It was designed in the Gothic Revival style and is the first Roman Catholic church built in Luton after the Reformation.

In 1845, a mission was founded in the town by Fr S. Ward. In the 1880s, the mission was served from St Joseph's Church in Bedford, and served a congregation of 180 people

On 20 January 1884, the mission was dedicated to Mary Help of Christians and its first Mass was said by Fr Joseph A. O'Connor. Efforts were made to raise funds for a permanent church. Later, in the 1880s, a church made of iron was constructed.

In 1910, on the same site of the iron church, the present church was built. It was made to accommodate a congregation of 350 people
