Parishes Coming Together

There were always close links between the parishes of St John the Baptist and St Kentigern. When new houses were built in Clermiston, Drumbrae and Parkgrove in the late 1950s a new church was needed to accommodate the extra parishioners of St John the Baptist. After a period of celebrating Mass at Fox Covert RC Primary School the new parish of St Kentigern was opened in 1966.


Ss John the Baptist and Kentigern is a Parish of the Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh, registered charity No. SCO08540
