Arrived in York early for meeting some work colleagues and looked for somewhere away from it all just to have silence. This very old and beautiful Catholic church was lovely. No pictures taken but really nice inside. There was a small prayer service taking place...More

A Beautiful church, which I'm honoured to attend every Sunday or so. Friendly and large congregation, with masses being more on the 'high' end of the Catholic spectrum (which is how I like them). The interior itself is wonderful and certainly makes one realise that...More

St Wilfred's is a rather attractive church with impressive architecture, particularly in the Chancel area where the ornate marble altar takes centre stage. I also liked the modern take on the stations of the cross via the very nice slate artworks.

This Victorian Catholic Church close to the Minster, is very pleasant. In the nineteenth century it was a pro cathedral for the then diocese of Beverley. It is now a parish manned by Oratorian fathers, the plan being to have a York Oratory. Perhaps this...More

I am not Catholic but used to attend services with my late husband. I was visiting York on a Holy Day, with a friend, so I sent to a Mass with her. The church itself was nice enough, although not extremely impressive. I guess I've...More

Have visited a few times this year. This is a refreshing and sensitive place of worship, in a tasteful setting. Have attended Mass and also entered through the designated 'Holy Door'. The young 'priests' are friendly and knowledgeable. This is a beautiful Catholic Church and...More

No crowds like the York Minster which is just steps away. Beautiful church in its own right. Well worth the visit to experience this lovely landmark.
