Paisley St. Mirin's Cathedral
Paisley has monastic origins. A chapel is said to have been established by the 6th/7th century Irish monk, Saint Mirin at a site near a waterfall on the White Cart Water known as the Hammils. The former parish Chruch of St. Mirin is situated in Incle Street Paisley at the junction of Glasgow Rd and was completed in 1931 close to the site of the original building which was the first stone built Catholic Church in Post-Reformation Scotland.

The building is Neo-Romanesque in style with plain sandstone exterior and as airy arched interior and the chancel is principally marble. (Architect Thomas Baird)

Of particular interest are the pulpit by Gillespie, Kidd & Coia, with representation of the Sermon on the Mount sculpted in relief from blond sandstone and the Station of the Cross designed by Kenneth King of Dublin which are Art Deco in style. In the apse four colourful tripartite stained glass windows depict the Twelve Apostles.
