You will find St. Mary's Church along the busy stretch of Sarojini Naidu Road in Secunderabad. It owes its early history to Father Daniel Murphy along with Bishop Carew. St. Mary's Church was completed in 1950. This church was formerly called the Cathedral of the Archdiocese of Hyderabad. In 1886, it ceased to be a cathedral. In 1871, a few nuns from St. Anne at Turin came here and opened a school that is popular as St. Ann's school.
St. Mary's Church bears resemblance to an old Irish Chapel. Curved arches and pointed buttresses are the hallmark of the St. Mary's church as also the four bells that were brought from Italy. It exhibits Gothic architecture from the outside but is relatively simpler inside. You can find stained glass windows and altars for Mother Mary and St. Patrick along with the main altar for Christ. Worshippers can meditate in quiet in the adjoining prayer room - St. Jude's Shrine. You can find a serene statue of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception, with her hands joined in prayer.

from earthquakes and from sudden death. Bless and protect,
O holy Virgin, all its inmates, obtain for them grace to avoid sin,
and save them from every other misfortune and accident.
