North Woodside Rd .

St Joseph's Rectory and Church, demolished some time in the 1980s. St Joseph’s was formerly administered by the Jesuits, and Gerard Manley Hopkins, who had been ordained as a Jesuit priest in 1877, served here as a relief temporary curate for two months in the autumn of 1881. It was not a happy time, and in a letter he described Glasgow as a ‘wretched place’ and ‘repulsive to live in’.
