The parish was founded by the Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI) in 1932 in an area previously included in the OMI parish of Mount St. Mary's. The present church was designed by Reynolds and Scott, and opened by Bishop Dwyer in July 1962. In 2008, the OMIs transferred responsibility for the parish to the Bishop of Leeds.
