Procession of the Blessed Sacrament

To celebrate the first anniversary of the Beatification of Blessed John Henry Newman and the visit of Pope Benedict XVI to Britain, there is to be a Blessed Sacrament procession in London on Saturday 1st October.

The procession leaves Westminster Cathedral at 1.30 pm via Ambrosden Avenue and will go down Francis Street, Vincent Street, Horseferry Road and Lambeth Bridge to St George’s Cathedral Southwark where, at approximately 2.30 pm, Benediction will be given.

This procession is not only an opportunity to commemorate the historic events of twelve months ago but is, more importantly, a witness to the reality of the presence of Christ in London.

You are warmly invited, and earnestly encouraged, to be a part of this historic event.
