...by the site of the execution block where, long ago, St John Fisher and St Thomas MOre met their deaths, is the starting-point on Saturday June 23rd for the MARTYRS WALK organised by the Miles Jesu/Continuity Movement. We'll be walking through London, stopping at Greyfriars (site of former Franciscan monastery) for a talk and a lunch-break and at St Patrick's, Soho Square, for Benediction, and things will finish at Tyburn, site of the heroic martyrdom of many of our greatest English saints including St Edmund Campion. The aim is to pray, evangelise, and witness to the Faith. This morning some of the organising team met at Tower Hill to check details. JOIN US THERE ON JUNE 23rd!! Just turn up! Nearest tube: Tower Hill, then walk to the Memorial Gardens (the tube station virtually opens out on to them) and at the far end you'll see the place where we're gathering.

If you can't come, you could help with a donation: Continuity Movement, 20 Fairview Rd London SW16 5PY.

The first part of the walk will take us past some of the famous London City churches like All-Hallows-by-the-Tower, St Olave's, St Lawrence Jewry and St Peter's Cornhill - I've been researching their history...
