The vision of our Parish is summed up in one sentence:
Our vision is the awe in front of a Person, Jesus Christ, the fount of true happiness,
who is present in the sign of our Christian community.
Our community is a place where everyone is encouraged to establish a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and to become one with Him, especially in learning how to love each other and take care of those in need. We believe that a community which fosters a personal relationship with Christ will be able to reach out and become truly missionary.
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.
