St Mary's Roman Catholic Church
In 1827, St Mary's, Inverness, was established as a Mission with Fr Terence McGuire as priest in charge. St Mary's Church opened on 2nd April 1837.This beautiful building was the work of William Robertson, Architect, of Elgin. It is a very fine example of Victorian Gothic Revival. By 1888, to cater for ever-growing numbers, the Church was enlarged by the addition of a new Sanctuary, with a High Altar in Caen stone after the style of Peter Paul Pugin.During 2014 and 2015, there was extensive internal decoration and refurbishment in the church. There re many fine new stained glass windows throughout the building, a re-ordered sanctuary with a new forward altar and reliquary, a new icon of the Presentation, and a new carved wood statue of St John Ogilvie.
