Venue: St Mary Moorfield's


St Mary Moorfields is located at 4-5 Eldon St, London EC2M 7LS (click for a map). This is in the City of London, the capital's financial district.

Tube: the church is between Moorgate Tube Station (Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan, plus the Northern Line) and Liverpool Street (Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan, plus the Central, and main line trains).

Parking: There is limited on-street parking nearby. The nearest car park is NCP London Finsbury Square.

Lunch: We have a break of about an hour for lunch, which can be consumed in the basement where there is a kitchenette, hot water, tables, and so on.

If you need to buy food, there are shops in all directions, including a large Marks & Spencer Food Hall with an entrance off Dominion Street, round the corner from the Church.

History: The Latin Mass Society frequently organises Masses in Moorfields, notably the services of the Easter Triduum.

There has been a Catholic church on this site since 1820; the present church was opened in 1903. Between 1850 and 1869 it was the 'pro-Cathedral' of the Archdiocese of Westminster; later Our Lady of Victories in Kensington served this function until Westminster Cathedral was built.

We would like to record our thanks to the Parish Priest Fr Christopher Vipers for his hospitality.
