In 1948 Marian Fathers belonging to the Byelorussian Catholic Church acquired a large house in Holden Avenue, North Finchley. A chapel there, registered for public worship according to the Byzantine-Slavonic rite in 1952, contains an iconostasis featuring ancient icons from Byelorussia. Another house in Holden Avenue is used in mission work. (fn. 1)
