Deptford is a place steeped in history and especially that of the Royal Navy. The Parish of The Assumption of Our Lady, Deptford, has an important place in that history. Since it's foundation as a Mission in 1842, the parish has served the Catholics who have worked in the shipyards and on the railways in that part of London. Many of them came from Ireland and much of the story of Deptford is their story too. In more recent years the parish has become a home to people from many places - each in their own way contributing to the continuing development of Deptford and the life of the Church in this Diocese.
