St. John Fisher, Pray for Us
John Fisher (c. 19 October 1469 – 22 June 1535), venerated by Roman Catholics as Saint John Fisher, was an English Catholic bishop and theologian. He was a man of learning, associated with the intellectuals and political leaders of his day, and eventually became Chancellor of the University of Cambridge.
St John Fisher Roman Catholic Church on Cofton Road was designed in 1964 in a neo-romanesque style by E Bower Norris. On the west wall is a concrete statue by Jonah Jones depicting St John Fisher robed as Bishop of Rochester, his hand raised in blessing, his left holding a quill pen symbolising his academic writings.
