Catholic Priest

At the intersection of the Oxford and Radley roads in Abingdon is a group of buildings – church, cloister, presbytery, school and former convent – that have developed over the years for the benefit of Abingdon's Catholic community. They have their origin in an organisation or ‘mission’ which was created in the 1850s largely by the efforts of three men. Father John Paul O’Toole was one of them and was the first minister to the mission.  The other two were Sir George Bowyer, the generous donor, and William Wilkinson Wardell, the initial architect.
