Leigh Deanery (formerly Leigh Pastoral Area) covers the town of Leigh and the smaller towns and villages to the east of Leigh, including Atherton, Astley, Tyldesley, Mosley Common, Boothstown and part of Ellenbrook in Worsley. The area is divided into two parishes, which were created on 8th September 2011:  the Parish of St Edmund Arrowsmith and the Parish of St Margaret Clitherow.

The Parish of St Edmund Arrowsmith is created out of the former parishes of St Joseph's, Sacred Heart, Our Lady of the Rosary and Twelve Apostles, Leigh.  The Parish of St Margaret Clitherow is created out of the former parishes of St Richard's (Atherton), Sacred Heart (Hindsford), St Ambrose Barlow (Astley), St Gabriel's (Higher Folds) and Holy Family (Boothstown).

The Deanery is served by a team of priests and deacons working together across the area.

We are lucky to have a Secondary School and eight primary schools in our deanery. Deanery Schools
