Catherine McAuley

Walk in the footsteps of Mother Catherine McAuley - through the cloisters, in the chapel and even the very room in which she slept during her stay here at Handsworth, the last Convent she founded before her death.

Mercy Archives and Heritage

St Mary's is a significant base for Mercy Archive ministry.  The story of the Mercy order and various convents is told through an exhibition of archives and artefacts. 

Pugin

The building itself and much of its contents, designed  by Pugin, is an architectural gem.

Local History

Strong historical connections with local figures such as the Hardman family, Bishop
Walsh and the Earl of Shrewsbury and their social involvement in the area make for a very interesting story.
