I am not Catholic but used to attend services with my late husband. I was visiting York on a Holy Day, with a friend, so I sent to a Mass with her. The church itself was nice enough, although not extremely impressive. I guess I've just seen too many other churches around the world and am experiencing burnout.
Have visited a few times this year. This is a refreshing and sensitive place of worship, in a tasteful setting. Have attended Mass and also entered through the designated 'Holy Door'. The young 'priests' are friendly and knowledgeable. This is a beautiful Catholic Church and a Grade 11 listed building. The history of this church is worth reading, in addition... 更多
I've been to lot of churches throughout Europe and beyond. St Wilfred's is nice - I can't say more. It doesn't have stand-out architecture or decoration and I haven't worshipped there.

I attended a Saturday Vigil mass here. It was lovely and the atmosphere is very prayerful and peaceful. I will return if I am in York again.
I came into this church on the way to visit the Minster. Spent some time here as the atmosphere was warm and friendly. I lit some candles and was amazed to see there was a no fixed fee, only a donation. How disappointed I was when I discovered the fee to enter the Minster was £10.00. They should learn something... 更多
I attended the 12 noon Easter Sunday Mass ! It was the finest and most reverent Mass I have attended in the UK , and a fine sound sermon given by the Father. Well-done to the clergy, servers, volunteers and magnificent choir for preserving the Mass of all time ! For non Catholics, you could not fail to be impressed... 更多
