Parish Church of Little Saint Mary, Cambridge

Little Saint Mary’s (also known as Saint Mary the Less) is a medieval parish church in the heart of the ancient English university city of Cambridge. Since the late 19th century it has offered a distinctive liturgical and sacramental witness in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England to both the City and University. 

A question many ask is why this church has the epithet ‘Little’. It is because near this church building lies the well-known University church, Great St. Mary’s. Little Saint Mary is smaller than the latter one, but higher.
