  • I always like to visit this church when I'm in Manchester. The alter is just amazing and you see something different every time you look. The craftsmanship is sublime and it would not be out of place....  more

  • Beautiful grade 2* listed church, the first Catholic church founded as a church in any major population centre in England after the Reformation. Wonderful, prayerful parish community where God is at work, as shown in the worship of the parish and the work they do for local charities including the local homeless shelter. Also home to Norman Adams's Fourteen Stations of the Cross, one of the great ecclesiastical art commissions in England in the last hundred years.
  • First time I went to Mass here, I was a not sure if coming back to Church is right for me. But the priest’s Homily made me feel so welcome that I opened up to God. I’ve been coming to St Mary’s the Hidden Gem ever since. This my parish, my spiritual home. Anyone visiting Manchester is always welcome here 🙏🏾
