Video: This Is Where The English Catholic Revival Began

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 01/19/15

Fr. Robert Barron visits the Farm Street Church in London

This is another behind-the-scenes video from Pivotal Players, Fr. Robert Barron’s new series. Here Fr. Barron speaks to us from Farm Street Church in London, officially known as The Church of the Immaculate Conception, Farm Street, which was completed in 1849. The gothic structure was designed and built by Jesuits and became a center for the Catholic revival in England, which began about the time of the church’s opening. It’s an ideal stop along Fr. Barron’s journey as he prepares to relate the stories of two pivotal players: John Henry Cardinal Newman and G.K. Chesterton.
