How to get to the Youth Pastoral Centre
Govanhill is an area 2 miles directly to the south of the River Clyde from Glasgow City Centre. It can be approached travelling south from High Street then Aitkenhead Road then Cathcart Road. An alternative route would be from Union St / Jamaica Street then Pollokshaws Road.
Our Lady of Consolation church sits on Inglefield Street at the end of Carfin Street, near Calder Street. It is a large cube-shaped brick building with a large cross on top of it.
The best approach is from Cathcart Road, into Govanhill Street, then onto Inglefield Street itself.
Please note that Inglefield Street is blocked off where it meets Calder Street and also where it meets Carfin Street.
