Mass Celebrated at Wade's Place in Honour of 200 Years of Catholic Education

Bishop Nicholas Hudson made a special visit to Poplar, East London on 6th July 2017 to celebrate Mass at Our Lady and St Joseph’s School to mark 200 years of Catholic education at Wade’s Place, the street which the school is situated on.

This street has seen a lot of change within these last 200 years. The first recorded school here was a boys’ school set up by the parish in 1816 to cope with the huge demand from the increasing Irish immigration attracted to the docks; it had 104 boys crammed into a 16ft room.
