English Catholics
Founded in 1872 with help from the Duke of Norfolk, St. Joseph’s is the only Catholic parish church in Dorking, Surrey, England. The Dukes of Norfolk were a Catholic family and had their own chaplains, who also served the needs of local Catholics in the 18th and 19th centuries. Henry Fitzalan-Howard, 15th Duke of Norfolk, originally owned the site of the present church, and it was there that the duke and duchess financed the building of a church to serve the local community. The Gothic Revival style church was built in the waning years of the 19th century.
