NEXT Catholic History Walk in London... on Wed Oct 1st. Meet 6.30pm (after the 5.30pm Mass) on the steps of Westminster Cathedral. We will walk down to the river and along the south bank. All welcome: no need to book, just turn up...wear comfortable shoes for walking.

To give you a taster: did you know that the City of Westminster has the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, holding her divine Son, on its coat-of-arms?  Next time you come out of Westminster Cathedral, and cross Victoria Street and walk down past the City Hall, stop and look at the big coat-of-arms by its main door. There she is, on a blue background, right in the centre...

Another taster: do you know the origins of the Blew Coat School (yes, that spelling is correct) and the Green Coat Boy pub, and the Grey Coat Hospital?
