Photo-a-Day (Friday, 30th May, 2014)
St Josephs and St James
St. James' Church is now called St. James with St. Thomas
St Josephs, my introduction to God.
Baptised, First Confession, First Holy Communion, and Confirmed there. Now a picture in a photo album..
Andrew ,a very good photograph ,where was it taken from?
Thanks Tom, it was one of a series taken from Wigan Parish Church tower at about 5am to get the warm sunrise light
From Wigan Parish Church, read the caption!
A very good photo Andrew, am I right in thinking that the original St Thomas church, now combined with St James was in Caroline Street, near St Joseph's?
AW - that's the one - some of the fixtures and fittings were transferred to St James from St Thomas when it closed.
What is the building immediately above St James' Church tower?
Alan H, ASDA. Weatleaf estate.
Garry, you're not having a good week,are you?
It's NOT Asda on the Wheatlea Estate, it is Saica Packaging, Total Fitness and the new Derbyshire Farm Business Park just off Warrington Road.
Andrew, I remember St Thomas's being demolished and feeling quite sad, it is nice to know it lives on as part of St James.
