Neighborhood: 8th Arrondissement

This English speaking Catholic church is situated in Paris' upscale 8th arrondissement. It was founded by Father Ignatius Paoli, an Irish priest en route to Rome who stopped in Paris and recognized the need for an English speaking congregation. St. Joseph's Catholic Church was completed in May 1987 and is located within the same building that housed the original St. Joseph's Church which dates back to 1863. The Church's archives acknowledge it as having baptized Oscar Wilde before he died, and state that it has always welcomed "the fashionable, aristocratic, diplomatic, literary and financial world of Paris."
