St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School Parish Churches
St Josephs Catholic Primary School is served by two parishes: The Church of St Anslem and St Cæcilia, Holborn and Corpus Christi Catholic Church, Covent Garden.
Corpus Christi Catholic Church, Maiden Lane;
The Westminster Diocesan Shrine of the Blessed Sacrament
Pope Benedict XVI famously once said that ‘without the Eucharist, the Church quite simply would not exist.’
Corpus Christi was opened in 1874 by Cardinal Manning. Over the years Corpus Christi has become a place of devotion, stillness and prayer where one can come and spend some time before the Blessed Sacrament, make one’s confession or simply light a candle for a particular intention. With a strong emphasis on beauty and tradition, the very heart of Corpus Christi’s mission is leading souls to God, who is the fullness of Beauty, Truth and Life.
If anybody is ever in London and in Covent Garden, please come to Corpus Christi Church in Maiden Lane. You will get a glimpse of Heaven and an embrace of God’s mercy, peace and calmness in the midst of a busy city.
– His Eminence, Vincent Cardinal Nichols
