The Roman Catholic mission in Normandy began around 1927. Mass was said in the village hall until 1931 when a second hand wooden building, said to have been an army officers mess, was erected on a site off Glaziers Lane. The mission became part of the Roman Catholic ecclesiastical parishan ecclesiastical parish is an administrative area within the Church of England or Roman Catholic church. It is distinct from the civil parish, a local government unit in England of Ash when the new Holy Angels church was opened in Ash in 1934.

The mission church finally closed in 2002 following a redeployment of clergy in the area. The land was sold for housing and is now known as Milton Close.
