St. Anthony Catholic Church, Gbaja, Lagos
Saint Anthony’s Catholic Church, Gbaja, Surulere, was opened and dedicated by Archbishop Leo Hale Taylor on June 25, 1961. The early parishioners were mainly Catholics from various parts of Lagos Island, from Parishes such as Holy Cross Cathedral, St. Patrick’s (Idumagbo), St. Michael’s (Lafiaji), St. Joseph’s (Elegbata), etc. They were people who had been displaced by development works in Lagos Island and who had just moved into Surulere to take advantage of the new houses in the newly developing Surulere.
