This is called the Hidden Gem, and it is difficult to find. Located off John Dalton Street, and down a small alleyway near the Trinity public house is Mulberry Passageway. Keep following this and bearing right, and then at the end of the passage turn right and there is the Church. Unfortunately on the Monday we tried to visit it was closed but from the architecture of the front façade we imagine it would be worth the visit. Regards Gary Saunders

Found this church while walking around Manchester. What a gem . My Mother always says to make a wish when you visit a church for the first time. I did just that!

An absolute 'hidden gem' of a church. Amazing dome, tranquil church and stunning altar. Only downside was the ' out of character' stations of the cross ! Bit bizarre. Probably worth the visits to see this !

Many guide books refer to St Mary’s church as a hidden gem and it is exactly that. It's a little hard to find but once you do, it's well worth it. This Roman Catholic church is very nice with a very pretty altar and modern stations of the cross.

Off the beaten track and took us 10 minutes to actually find it, it is an amazing small Catholic Church, well worth a visit to see. Unusual modern-day-esque art accompanied the traditional paintings of old. Lovely greeting by the lady who worked there.
