Overview

A 15-minute walk from its Anglican counterpart along Hope Street, 1960s' "futurism" best describes the exterior of what's locally know as "Paddy's Wigwam." The huge interiors illuminated by natural light through the exquisite stained glass is worth the journey itself.

Very interesting building. All the blue and green stained glass is peaceful, broken by glorious rich red patches of glass. Very beautifully done. It would be well worth coming to a service here, as the layout would make it quite different.

We have visited here previously, but I'm still in awe when I visit. As it's so modern I had expected to dislike it (I prefer my churches old), I was totally wrong! It's absolutely stunning, as Catholics, we attended Mass in a little Chapel kind...More

We visited this beautiful cathedral on a sunny day and my, the kaleidoscope of colours from the sun shining through the coloured glass windows into the cathedral was beautiful. A must see attraction.

Catholic Cathedral in Liverpool is unlike any I’d seen before. The building is mostly concrete and looks like a Gemini space capsule. Inside is equally different with the altar in the middle and pews arranged in a circle around. Made for a very inclusive feel....More
