" The post-war years saw rapid changes in the town of Inverness. With the growth in population, new housing estates were springing up, extending the burgh boundaries to the east. The congregation had increased in proportion and, by the end of the Fifties, the Catholic Directory records an estimated Catholic population of 1520. Many families without private transport had to walk long distances to Sunday Mass and in 1959, Bishop Walsh decided the time had come to create a new parish in the town.

A house was purchased in Culduthel Road and altered to become a bright and modern Church. Many felt sadness at what seemed the breaking up of the Community but the years have proved the necessity of the decision.
