I visit this church during the lent. It was a very cold day and this church gave me sanctury. The warm and peaceful atmosphere inside make me forget for a moment the busy and hectic life outside. This church is also beautifully decorated. Worth a visit for the soul and for the eyes.

I was really surprised after entering this church, as I did not expect the inside to be so beautiful. It is very well maintained and has many original features. Definitely worth a visit.

French Neo-Gothic masterpiece in the heart of the University Campus. Still and Serene compared to bustle and noise outside.

We attend the Holy Name regularly. However I was not impressed by the christmas sermon this year ( and the lack of mass programmes) Expected better from the Jesuits

The Holy Name Church is close to Manchester Uni and is well worth a visit. It has a lovely peaceful and spiritual atmosphere. The stained glass windows are beautiful and very much a contrast to the windows you can see in the Cathedral at the other end of the city centre. I visited mid afternoon and spent a good hour...
