I married here in 1979. I can remember the church being build - it was considered very modern at the time. Before that the church was what is now the social club. Any one remember Father Maudsley the first parish priest? He lived in a house next to the little wood.

The first priest I remember there was Father McKay. He was at the old church, now the social club. When the new church opened in 1970, the BBC broadcast midnight mass from there 'live' I remember TV cameras and lights all over the church, and the director, said whatever you do don't look into the camera, well guess what....

It has recently been announced by the Bishop of Leeds Arthur Roach, that St Gregory's Church will become a Chapel of Ease to St Theresa's in Cross Gates, this means that within possibly the next five or so years no priest will reside at St Gregory's. What's the betting it will not exist for much longer after that!
