The church then was a brand-new building of a modern design. Today it`s defunct and sits behind a roll shutter to deter vandals. The priests have all left town.
So I googled Holy Cross Birkenhead and found a link on the Taking Stock website which was hitherto unknown to me. Holy Cross Birkenhead is indeed an exciting modern design. How sad it is now redundant.

Unfaithful Music was most interesting in its telling the story of EC`s relationship with his father and the account of his father`s death was very moving. Also there were insights into some of his lyrics I`ve never understood.
Now on to Mgr McReavy and Vatican II. I`ve looked at the introduction and learning that Vatican II was the most important event in the church since 1054 made me think this might not be the book for me but my good friend Fr Cooper tells me that it is unputdownable once you get started so I look forward to it. I hope I`ll understand better what it was all about....
Your link to the Taking Stock website is fascinating. It is not only a resource with photographs of, in our case, every Catholic Church in the Diocese, but has a potted history of every parish. Invaluable.
I still prefer Lonnie Donegan to your pal Elvis.
Should we not all be concerned about the church closures not only in H&N but throughout the country? Last time we were in the US churches were being expanded or rebuilt larger. We must be doing something terribly wrong.ReplyDelete
PS I agree with Terry about Lonnie Donegan who was in his heyday during my army service (1957-59)
