St John the Evangelist, Fountain Road, Kirkdale
In 1870 there was no Catholic church in Kirkdale. In 1871 a building which had been a Congregational Chapel was opened for Mass on February 12th by Father Moses Doon (Dawn?)who also began the school in the basement of this little chapel. The Sessions Road school was opened in 1878 and the church itself was not opened until 20th November 1885. The interior is quite impressive with some beautiful stained glass windows and magnificent altars.
