Did not know it existed until I stumbled across it. Very close to the town hall but what a surprise. Church is small but the interior is very beautiful and very calming. Lovely place if you want a few moments to reflect in a calming manner.

I came across this beautiful church while wandering around the city .Very peaceful ,I took time to sit and look at the Stations of the cross which are worth a look .It was nice to see members of the congregation quietly queuing for confession during Holy Week .

If you have a spare few minutes and want to escape the hurly burly of Manchester then this is a wonderful little oasis of calm. It is a beautiful little church with some amazing artwork. you can sit and contemplate and leave feeling rejuvenated spiritually.

I was in Manchester for a wedding and my friends stopped briefly to let me have a view of the place and told a little history too. I could not go in and have proper view. They promised to bring me back here on my next visit. Am looking forward to spending more time in this nice little worship place

This is a beautiful little church and well worth visiting and for going to Mass. Really a little gem that should be on everyone's list of 'must see places' in Manchester.

Had a few moments spare and called into this little church. It seems to be very special to its loyal congregation who appear to have given it rave reviews and is certainly more ornate than your average English church The inside is however INMO, very modest by continental standards but is worth a quick look round if you have 5... More

This church is well known to locals. It's appeal is probably that it is tucked away behind office buildings and unless you know about it you would not walk past. It offers a little peace and quiet for some reflection during a busy shopping trip!

Hidden Gem is its nickname as its hidden away from the crowds,behind buildings on Mulberry Street off the famous Albert Square.So cute and so tiny and still serves the catholic people of Manchester although if you want to attend mass you have to get there early as you won't fit in the church.Lovely old piece of town!

This church has a lot of history and is certailnly worth a visit. It is quite hidden away -hence the name "Hidden Gem". The Christmas carol services are beautiful - all local school children who put their heart and souls into the singing - well worth attending.

been here many times for services, although in the town centre it really is a hidden gem. each time you go you will be inspired to return again and again.
