Saint Mary's Church Warrenby
The Wesleyen chapel in Warrenby no longer in use was bought by Cannon Brunner of the Sacred Heart.
Saint Mary's church Warrenby opened in 1953 prior to the opening on Tod Point road members of the church had always had quite a walk to the Sacred Heart on Lobster road.
Sadly the church in Warrenby closed in 1978 as people were being rehoused and Warrenby itself was on the decline.
Monsignor Brunner of the Sacred Heart organised a bus for the few remaining parishioners
