Situated at the heart of the original University of Manchester campus, the Holy Name Church was established in 1871 by the Society of Jesus. A tower was added in 1928, and it is a Grade I listed building. Although the church faced closure in the 1980s when its traditional congregations dwindled, due to the subsequent huge expansion of the university sector, it is now part of the Catholic chaplaincy to the institutions of higher education in Manchester, and so the Holy Name Church, and the Society of Jesus, are now ministering to the spiritual needs of the multinational staff and students of the Universities of Manchester.
