Campion House College
CB214 · Corporate body · 1914-2004

Campion House was a Roman catholic college run by the Society of Jesus in the Archdiocese of Westminster. Originally a Victorian mansion called Thornbury House. In 1911, it came under the ownership of the Society of Jesus as a retreat house. After the First World War the name was to Campion House College and it became place to help young men, with a late vocation, to progress in their training for the priesthood. The college was not just for the Jesuits but for students from all the Catholic dioceses of England and Wales, other religious orders and from outside of the UK. The college provided its own newsletter Stella Maris.
In the early 1960s, over 160 men were annually being trained. So it was decided to make the college permanent and for it to serve all men who had a late vocation. However, from the 1970s, student numbers lessened and by the turn of the 21st century, students numbers had gone down and the house was used more as a retreat centre. So in April 2004, it was announced that it would close. Its closure was marked on 12 May 2004 by a Mass at Westminster Cathedral led by the Archbishop of Westminster.

1924: writing to Bishop re East of Diocese parishes
Jesuit scholar, writer, and preacher; b. London, May 25, 1879; d. March 18, 1963. Educated at Harrow School. He was received into the Catholic Church by the Jesuit fathers at Bournemouth and soon afterwards entered the English Jesuit novitiate. After philosophical studies at St. Mary's Hall, Stonyhurst, he matriculated at Pope's Hall (afterward Campion Hall), Oxford, in 1901 and had a distinguished academic career, receiving first-class honors in literae humaniores and numerous prizes and scholarships in classics and theology. He taught at Stonyhurst College and at Manresa House before returning to Oxford. He was ordained in August of 1911.
At Oxford during World War I, he did much to help the wounded Australian soldiers in the hospital there. His work with university students encouraged the intellectual development of Catholic life throughout the world.
An enthusiastic and informed pioneer of the liturgical revival, especially through his books on the Mass. His position on the Permanent Committee of the International Eucharistic Congresses took him to Australia, Africa, and South America and brought him close to the realities of missionary work. The apostleship of the sea was established largely through his efforts.
A preacher and speaker of unique appeal, lacking of rhetoric, but with a personal sympathy that later made him the most popular of broadcasters. An army of converts, from dukes to dustmen, bear witness to his patience as a teacher. He was never surprised by human folly, and he was never so much at home as in the East End of London, where he did an immense amount of work in clubs and settlements to manifest the Church's concern for the poor.
During World War II, he was in Denmark at the time of its invasion and was held captive until the end of the war. After his release he returned to England and, despite recurring illness, kept up a large correspondence and showed a lively interest in the new manifestations of Catholic life he had done so much to stimulate. Although he wrote some books and articles that were scholarly, his greater achievement was as a populariser; and his numerous lives of saints, books of travel, biographies, and spiritual writings, despite a discursive style, were rooted in an exact intellectual discipline.

1925: Residing at St Mary's in Great Yarmouth
Historian and journalist; b. London, England, Sept. 22, 1858; d. Roehampton, April 8, 1925. He was the third of ten children born to John H. Pollen, professor of fine arts at the Catholic University in Dublin during Newman's brief rectorship, and Maria Margaret Laprimaudeye, daughter of the future Cardinal Manning's curate at Lavington. After schooling in Münster, Westphalia, and later at the Oratory, Birmingham, Pollen entered the Society of Jesus in 1877. A year spent, between his philosophical and theological studies, in assisting Father John Morris, then vice-postulator of the cause of the English martyrs, determined the direction his own work was to take; after ordination (1891) he was appointed to the Jesuit House of Writers at Farm Street, London, where he led a life of single-minded devotion to the tasks of research, writing, and lecturing, mainly on the English martyrs and related matters. (see england, scotland, and wales, martyrs of.) He became vice-postulator of the cause, in succession to Father Morris, whose "Life" he wrote. He also edited and contributed to sundry volumes published by the Catholic Record Society, and contributed to the "Lives of the English Martyrs," collaborating with Dom Bede Camm, OSB, in the first series, and with Canon E. H. Burton in the second.

For almost 40 years, although not formally attached to the staff of the Jesuit review, the month, he regularly contributed articles that evidenced a first-class historical mind. These soon led to an invitation to speak before the Scottish Historical Society, which resulted in the publication of the documents contained in Papal Negotiations with Mary, Queen of Scots (1901) edited by Pollen with a long introductory study. He returned to the theme intermittently in the pages of the Month until 1922, when he published Queen Mary and the Babington Plot.

Pollen's most considerable work was The English Catholics in the Reign of Queen Elizabeth: A Study of Their Politics, Civil Life, and Government, 1558–1580 (1920). It gave final shape to the conclusions he had reached in piecemeal studies published in the Month over the years, and was generally accepted as at once scholarly and authoritative. It has stood the test of time, as reference to such a work as Philip Hughes's The Reformation in England (5th ed. 1963) clearly indicates.
