Fr Michael's artistic talents first came to light when he worked for Redemptorist Publications and began to draw cartoons. His most ambitious project was drawing the cartoons for the popular book on Catholic belief entitled How to survive being married to a Catholic.
St Patrick’s has a long and intriguing history. Built originally for the Scottish Episcopal Church in 1776, it then became a United Presbyterian Congregation before becoming a Catholic Church in 1856. It is a highly significant building, both architecturally and socially. Its tower and spire are a notable part of the skyline of the Old Town.
