The first Our Lady in Ara Coeli Catholic Catholic Church in Northampton was built under the guidance of Father Lecaille, who opened and blessed it on 1/11/1868. This church was demolished in 1963 to make way for the new Catholic School. The present church was built slightly in front of the first church.
