The Church Hall was originally constructed as a Mass centre whilst the the Church and Presbytery were being built. This was the solution arrived at by Fr. McGowan, the first Parish Priest, to enable Mass to be celebrated on the newly purchased plot of land on Finney Lane whilst the Church was being constructed and to remove the necessity for Sunday Mass to continue to be celebrated in the Heald Green Hotel.
The 'Stockport Advertiser' of the 18th January 1962 , reported, "The church presented Mr. and Mrs. Townsend with a Silver Salver and a Papal Blessing in recognition of their help by providing accommodation every Sunday in 'The Upper Room' of the Heald Green Hotel for so many years for the celebration of Mass"
The cost of constructing the hall was £6,001.15s.4d in 1960. The first Mass was celebrated on Easter Sunday 1960.
Once the hall came into regular use there were two Masses on a Sunday morning, one at 8.15am and the second at 10.45am, these times being determined by the scheduled times of arrival of bus service No 29 at the stop near to the Griffin Hotel. This was an hourly service.
Over the ensuing years the hall has been in constant use both for church services, social events and latterly is used regularly on a Sunday morning during the 11.00am Mass as a location for the Children's Liturgy. The hall is also used on a regular basis by the Guides and Rainbows as their regular meeting place. The hall is also available for private hire for functions.
In 2009 the hall however was in need of refurbishment and decoration in order to meet the demands of its increasing usage. This refurbishment was masterminded by Father Paul with the invaluable help of Mr. Bernard McCandry and a team of volunteer helpers. See report below....
