St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross - Our Parish
St. Anthony's Catholic Primary School belongs to a new parish, formed in 2009 following the merger of the parishes of St Mary and St Walburga in Shipley and St Aidan’s in Baildon. Our Parish Priest is Fr. Keiron Walker.
Previously there were two churches in our own smaller parish, St Anthony of Padua, Windhill and Our Lady and St Anthony at Wrose. In 1997 the latter church was closed and, after a life of almost 50 years, the parish was finally disestablished.
St Anthony’s and the Windhill community then transferred to St Walburga’s parish and the remainder to St Francis of Assisi, Eccleshill.
St Anthony’s Church, Windhill, continued to function as a chapel-of-ease in the parish of St Walburga until 2009 when, following the major reorganisation of parishes within the Bradford area, the church was finally closed.

We join together with our local Catholic school, St. Walburga's, for joint masses every term at either of our churches. Fr. Keiron comes in every week to say mass, lead services and talk the children and staff.
