A very gentle way of evangelisation...
The church remains open from 7:30pm - 10pm, bathed in just candlelight. On the altar is the exposed Blessed Sacrament. Live music is softly played in the background.
Our volunteers are outside, in pairs, just inviting passers by to come in and light a candle. The response to the invitation varies, but a surprising amount of people come in.
No hard sell, no twisting arms, no guilt trips - just beauty, candles and grace.
Come along and join the team!
Heritage Open Days at Holy Name Manchester
We are delighted to welcome all visitors to Heritage Open Days on the 13-22 September at the Holy Name Church, Manchester’s only Grade 1 listed Catholic church, built by Joseph Hansom in 1871 and that was the heart of the community for thousands of Irish immigrant workers for over 100 years, before becoming the Universities Church.
During the heritage open days there will be displays in the church to showcase some shared memories and presentations about the church restoration project such as: • Housing clearance and loss of community – maps and memories • Remembering the Whit Walks • Climate change and the Holy Name roof • The pot vault, 14th September – an innovative construction story by Architect Mark Pearce and Archivist Mary Allen will tell the story of how Hansom’s original plans and drawings were discovered in an old vestment chest.
We will be open every day 13-22 September 9.30-5pm (8pm Sunday) with mass daily at 1.05pm (Saturday 11am, Sunday 9.15am, 12 noon and 7pm).
Friday, September 13, 2019 - 09:30 to Sunday, September 22, 2019 - 20:00
