Welcome to our parish website.
Ss Mary and Modwen is the Catholic Church in the town centre of Burton-upon-Trent which is part of the Archdiocese of Birmingham. While the current parish church was built in 1871 the historic links of the parish go back to its patron, St Modwen, who founded a church in the town in the 7th Century.
Today, the parish continues to be a place of welcome and prayer to its parishioners and visitors to the area. We hope you are able to use this website to find out about what is happening in the parish.
