London Open House Weekend




This weekend is London Open House Weekend, when thousands pre-book to get into the Gherkin, and hundreds of other buildings of significant architectural interest are also open. Our church, St. Joseph's, is open, although shoehorned in between masses.





Mrs. Werbenmanjensen and I volunteered this afternoon to be docents for visitors, which also allowed us to get some photos (including from the organ loft, where we would otherwise not be allowed to go).

I agree that is a beautiful church. How old is the parish and the church?

The parish was founded in 1858 by Passionists who celebrated their first mass in a pub (they had to come in in disguise). The church in its present form dates back to 1888.
