A Parish of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Paisley

Welcome to our parish website

Fr. David Boyd

Parish Priest

“I wish all visitors, to this website and to the parish church, every peace and joy. We are a lively, and welcoming parish of the Diocese of Paisley. We extend pastoral care to those living in Erskine, St. John Bosco’s Primary and Trinity High School, and we work closely with the neighbouring parish of St. Bernadette’s. Please come and join one of our celebrations or for some quiet time in the midst of this busy world.

I hope you will find our parish a ‘home’ for you to grow spiritually and to experience the Lord in and through this community of faith.”

Fr. David

The Parish of St John Bosco sits almost in the shadow of the Erskine Bridge on the south bank of the river Clyde. Only with the building of a “New Community” in 1971 did Erskine move from being a village to a small town. Before then the Catholic population of Erskine would attend Mass in Our Lady of Lourdes’, Bishopton. Later as the population increased a priest from Our Lady of Lourdes’ would come and celebrate Mass in St John Bosco Primary School until the present church was built.
