...for the Martyrs' Walk tomorrow (Sunday June 24th). Meet near the Old Bailey - site of Newgate Prison where many Catholic martyrs of the 16th and 17th centuries were held before their execution. We'll be gathering in the churchyard of St Sepulchre-without-Newgate, nearby. We'll be walking along the route taken by the martyrs, stopping at the Church of Sts Anselm and St Cecilia, at St Giles-in-the-Fields, and and at St Patrick's, Soho Square. We finish at Tyburn Convent with Benediction. The Walk is part of a tradition stretching back a hundred years, commemorating the Martyrs and praying for our country and for unity and goodwill among Christians. We pray the Rosary, and there are opportunities for Confession. Come and join us.
