u003cpu003eSince the laying of its foundation stone in 1851, the church of Holy Trinity Brook Green has been a centre for the Catholic faith in West London. Coming to be known as 'Little Rome', or 'Pope's Corner' at some point after the Reformation, this quarter of London came to be recognised as a place of safety for Catholics and a place of Catholic education.u003c/pu003e u003cpu003eTradition has it that it was thanks to Queen Catherine of Braganza, the Portuguese and Catholic wife of Charles II, who from 1686 had a house on Hammersmith Mall, that a small community of English Nuns from Munich settled at the Great House in 1668, thereby creating the nucleus of a Catholic religious presence in the area that has never since been extinguished.u003c/pu003e u003cpu003eTo this day home to some significant Catholic relics, the Church maintains its position as an important hub for the faith, and the centre of a flourishing congregation and wider community. u003c/pu003e
