1840-1849 - West End Lane (Hampstead)

Priest Domenico Giovanni Luigi Barberi was born on 22 June 1792 at Pallanzana, then in the Papal States, into a family of small farmers. He joined the Congregation of Discalced Clerks of the Most Holy Cross and Passion, an order founded in the 1720s. In 1814, he received a divine’ call to undertake missionary work in England. He arrived in November 1840. The first London foundation of the order was established at Poplar House, West End Lane, Hampstead, in 1848. Barberi died of a heart attack at the Railway Tavern, Reading, in August 1849. His enthusiasm for the conversion of England touched many figures of the early Victorian Catholic revival. He was beatified on 27 October 1963.
