“Beautiful church tucked away from the hustle and bustle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

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"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

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!

“Beautiful little gem of Manchester”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

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.

“Iconic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

St Mary's is truly a Gem whether hidden or not. The Stations of the Cross, seem to divide people along Marmite type lines, but I find them absolutely stunning and so thought provoking. The whole church is a masterpiece, completed by the fantastic, ancient Father Clinch who embodies so much of what makes me proud to be a Catholic in Manchester.
