...following the wonderful visit of Pope (now Emeritus) Benedict XVI to Britain in 2010, we hold a great Procession of the Blessed Sacrament linking London's two Catholic cathedrals - St George's in Southwark and Westminster on the northern bank of the river. The Pope visited Pope during his historic visit - as did Pope St John Paul before him, in 1982.
This year's Procession will be on SATURDAY September 30th, starting at St George's Cathedral Southwark at 1.30pm. It is always a glorious sight as we cross the Thames, with the Houses of Parliament as a backdrop. Knights of St Columba guide us, and we carry the Blessed Sacrament flanked by altar servers and candle-bearers...
COME AND JOIN US! Be at St George's Cathedral, Southwark, a little before 1.30pm. Things finish with Benediction at Westminster following the Procession across Lambeth Bridge and across Millbank...
Come and help make history! The Procession was first held in 2011 to give thanks for the success of the Papal visit, and by popular demand has continued annually. This year, for the first time, it starts in Southwark -come and help make it the biggest and best yet!
