Useful Information

This beautiful church - now regarded as the Society's main church for South London - was one of the last to be designed by the distinguished Victorian architect, John Loughborough Pearson. It originally served as the chapel of the Anglican Convent of Saint Peter.

Inside the church, a long nave meets an oak screen with a calvary, behind which are canopied choir stalls, also of oak. The sanctuary, in the East-end apse, has an inlaid marble floor. A carved alabaster altar is placed under a matching baldacchino.

The crypt chapel is decorated in the Byzantine style with luminous mosaics supported by columns of Connemara marble.

The first Mass celebrated by the Society's priests was on the feast of the Invention of the Holy Cross, 3rd May 1996, with regular Masses beginning on 2nd June of that year. The building was blessed by Bishop Bernard Fellay on Sunday 4th August 1996, shortly after His Lordship became the Society's Superior General.
