About Us

Welcome to one of Chesterís oldest Roman Catholic Churches, St Francis of Assisi. Set in the heart of Chester City Centre, near the Grosvenor Museum and Race Course, it was originally built for the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin. The construction of St Francis Church began in 1862 and was finally finished in 1875. It is now a thriving city Catholic Church serving a wide community over the Chester area.

Visiting Catholics and non Catholics from all over the world are always welcome. Have a look at our mass times and be sure to say hello to the Brothers after the mass. We look forward to meeting you.
