A Little of Our History

In 1965 Westhill was a quiet, rural hamlet of 25 houses.

Shortly thereafter, it entered into a period of rapid growth and expansion to become the bustling town it is today. 

There has been a Catholic Community in Westhill since at least 1974.

Initially, we were a part of the Cathedral Parish and Catholics from these parts had to make their way to the Cathedral in Aberdeen City Centre for Mass.

However, with the growing Catholic population, things began to change in 1977. 

From January 1977 we had Mass once a month in the Ashdale Hall, then a portacabin-style building, which stood on the site of the present Ashdale Hall near Trinity Church.

On 1st December 1979, the Vigil of the First Sunday of Advent that year, we began to gather weekly for Vigil Mass in Westhill Primary School. 

This weekly Mass in Westhill Primary School continued until Trinity Church was opened in 1981.

We have been at Trinity ever since.
