John’s Lane Church

Located in the Liberties district on Thomas St., this distinctive red sandstone and granite building is commonly known as John's Lane Church. In fact, its correct name is the Church of St. John the Baptist and St. Augustine --- a bit of a mouthful! Little wonder that locals preferred to name it after its location at the corner of John's Lane, a steep and narrow side-street. It is served by the Augustinian Order of monks and is a fully functioning Catholic church with all associated services.
