A chapel was first opened in Ossett in December 1877 as a Jesuit mission from Wakefield. The Jesuits continued to run the parish until 1910 when Diocesan priests continued the work. The present church was opened in July 1933 and consecrated in 1978. The parish includes the towns of Ossett and Horbury, Horbury Bridge, and the villages of Middlestown and Netherton/Overton.
St Ignatius’ Primary School is next to the church and serves the families of the parish.
