The Catholic Parish of St Swithun Wells was inaugurated on 10th December 2010 – the feast of St Swithun Wells.

The Parish brings together the six worshipping communities of Our Lady Queen of the Apostles in Bishops Waltham; St Edward the Confessor in Chandlers Ford; Holy Cross in Eastleigh; St Swithun Wells in Fair Oak; St Joseph’s in Romsey and St Andrew’s in North Baddesley – all of which were previously part of the Three Rivers Pastoral Area.

The Parish covers the geographical area from Romsey in the west to Bishop’s Waltham in the east skirting the northern boundary of Southampton.  Our parish is part of the Catholic Diocese of Portsmouth.

On the 3rd of September 2018 the Parish of St Swithun Wells was entrusted to the care of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Charles Borromeo.
