In the wake of Romero’s Feast Day and on the eve of Holy Week, there will be a Special Romero Mass at 12.30pm in St George’s Cathedral, Southwark. Archbishop John Wilson will preside and preach.
Following on from his homily, together with the Rector of the Shrine, Canon Richard Hearne, Archbishop John will ‘Commission’ four Guardians of the Cathedral’s Romero Shrine – Mgr John O’Toole, Canon Alan McLean, Ms Kathleen O’Brien and Mr Julian Filochowski.
As set out in the Shrine Statutes which were promulgated in December 2019, the Guardians will have the responsibility to foster devotion to St Oscar Romero and to assist the Rector in the oversight of the Shrine.
The Mass will be live streamed at: www.romerotrust.org.uk

It will also be possible to attend this Mass in person.
