St Alban’s Holborn: 150 years

St Alban’s Holborn will be marking the 150th anniversary of its consecration on Thursday 21 February.

The preacher at the 7pm Solemn Mass will be the Bishop of Chichester Martin Warner.

The church’s architect was William Butterfield who used St Kunibert’s in Cologne as the model for the tower and roof.

Both churches were bombed in the Second World War.

The remodelled St Alban’s opened in 1961. Adrian Scott provided a much simpler interior ¬†with a huge Hans Feibusch mural as the backdrop for fine liturgy.

It remains a parish church with a school and an inspiration to many visitors.
