Photo-a-Day (Saturday, 12th May, 2012)
St Mary's, Wigan
By hook or by crook... I'll be the first on this page!
An interesting pic.. looks like a nice church
Never been in, beautiful church.
Well done Tom, nice perspective again.
St.Mary must be the most common name for a church. I`ve met many on my travels - even in Wales in Monmouth and Abergavenny !
Manchester Cathedral`s official mame is "The Cathedral and Collegiate Church of St.Mary, St.Denys and St. George in Manchester."
Really nice picture of a wonderful church. It's funny in my day you never visited other churches (what a missed oportunity). I attended St Johns RC across the way, St Mary's were our hated enemy.
I've not got a religious bone in my body, yet the missus and I like visiting churches whenever we go anywhere.
Very nice indeed, been past the church hundreds of times never seen the inside.
I got married there in 1964,beautiful memories,still very happily married as i was 48 yrs agoo
Beautiful picture.........The carpet though, looks as old as me !
That`s about twenty five years eh ! Jean !!
T'ain't a carpet.They are wonderful Victorian tiles.
Father Johnson, Sean Edward's uncle, the priest there, was wonderful to my mother when she was in Hospital
Remember St Mary's well, went to St Mary's school behind the church infants and junior school,had to go to church every Sunday with my eldest sister and remember going Christmas eve's too,got married there in 1976.The church is still looking great.My Mum & Dad got married there too in 1955.
