This is a lovely place to go to on a Sunday. The services are interesting ( not boring or long and tedious) and the people there are friendly and welcoming.

We attended a funeral of a dear friend who suddenly passed away. The funeral service was beautiful and the church was packed.

This is a beautiful, historically significant church (Eleanor Rigby anyone?) and my lovely family are buried here, which makes it 5* in my book...

I did not go inside the church, but behind the church is a school now where John Lennon met Paul McCartney for the first time on July 6th 1957, thus being a very historic location for Beatles fans. The graveyard next to the church is also of interest for Beatles fans, since you can find the tombstones of Eleanor Rigby... More

It's warm, it's light, and the worshippers are friendly. Monseigneur John is gentle and the atmosphere has a sincerity about it that permeates through and through
