St. Mary of the Angels is a Roman Catholic church in Everton, Liverpool, built in 1907. It has magnificent interiors of marble, imported to bring Rome to Liverpool. The building of the church was funded by Amy Elizabeth Imrie, a Catholic convert and nun, who became an abbess of the Poor Clare Sisters. She was the heiress to the White Star Line shipping fortune when her uncle, William Imrie, died in 1906.

The building is a Grade II Listed Building; its interiors are also listed. The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Liverpool, which shut the church in Fox Street, in 2001, has stated that the church will never be reopened. The Archdiocese was prevented by Liverpool City Council in 2002 from stripping the church's Italian High Renaissance-style interior fixtures and fittings.
