Welcome to the website of St Aidan’s parish, Wishaw. Our parish is situated in the west of Scotland, in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Motherwell, and serves around 2000 souls in the town.

The parish is approaching its half-century, the first parish priest having been appointed in February 1960. Our parish boundaries coincide with those of St Mark’s Church of Scotland parish, and over the years we have developed a friendship with St Mark’s, holding regular church services and occasional social gathering with the two parish communities.

The parish is now celebrating its 50th anniversary. Our celebrations started with Mass on Sunday 29th August, and will continue throughout the year, until the Feast of St Aidan, 31st August 2011. A number of liturgical and social events have been planned in the parish for the year of celebration.
