I often attended services here because even though I am not Catholic, or indeed religious, I went to the primary school associated with this church and so attended various masses and even my friend's confirmation once.
I am biased as I began my priestly ministry here in 1980. I loved it then, and still do. A beautiful interior and a very calming place within a busy city.
