THE JESUIT CHURCH, ST. FRANCIS XAVIER’S, UPPER GARDINER STREET
While staying in Dorset Street, which is close to Upper Gardiner Street, Newman celebrated Mass in St. Francis Xavier’s Church. After Mass it was his custom to breakfast in the Jesuit Fathers’ house next door. The church is in the Baroque style and has a splendid Italian high altar. The tomb of the saintly John Sullivan S.J., also a convert, is located to the left of the church as you enter. It is from this church that the funeral of Gerard Manley Hopkins S.J., to Glasnevin Cemetery, took place.
