Hello and welcome to the Parishes of Our Lady of the Rosary, Peterlee & Our Lady Star of the Sea, Horden.

We are Roman Catholic congregations serving the Peterlee, Horden and Easington areas of East Durham and seek to, engage and encourage others through a life-changing Christian journey.

We are a loving, friendly community that worships God, and serves others. We place a high priority on teaching from the Bible and following the example of Jesus and welcome all people into our community.

Father Sean Neylan is our Parish Priest and he is assisted by Deacons Peter Barrigan and Neil Haggerstone to lead our journey of faith. We are part of the St Mary the Virgin Partnership and our partnership Dean is Father Marc Lyden-Smith.
