This building is the oldest Catholic church in Glasgow.

Architect James Gillespie Graham (1776–1855) was born in Dunblane, the son of Malcolm Gillespie, a solicitor. He was christened as James Gillespie.

His most notable work is in the Scottish baronial style, such as Ayton Castle. This Scottish architect also worked in the Gothic Revival style, in which he was heavily influenced by the work of Augustus Pugin. He also worked in the Neoclassical style as exemplified in his design of Blythswood House near Glasgow.

Some of his principal churches include St Mary’s Roman Catholic Cathedral, Edinburgh, and the former Highland Tolbooth Church (now The Hub) on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. His house designs include Cambusnethan House in Lanarkshire.
