London Witness: 75 years since the bombing of Hiroshima & Nagasaki
Aug 6 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am
London Witness: 75 years since the bombing of Hiroshima & Nagasaki

We will have a silent, outdoor, socially-distanced presence outside Westminster Cathedral between 10 and 11.30 am. If you can safely join us, please come and stand in silence for a while. The plaza space is large so you will be able to maintain a distance. You might like to bring a candle, some flowers, or a sign, but just to be present will be enough. We understand that many who would like to be there in person will not be able to do that this year. Join us in prayer instead. in the words of Pope Francis: ‘Come, Lord, for it is late, and where destruction has abounded, may hope also abound today that we can write and achieve a different future. Come, Lord, Prince of Peace! Make us instruments and reflections of your peace!

Note that we have an online liturgy at 8 am which you may also like to join.
