RC Diocese of Southwark

St George’s Cathedral, Southwark

Sunday 28th October 2012


At the Mass  we will celebrate the efforts of schools, churches, charities and individuals across the three dioceses of  Brentwood, Southwark and Westminster who have engaged in a time a peace-building before, during and after the London 2012 Games to encourage nations worldwide to honour the Olympic Truce.

There will also be a handover of tokens of the Peace Legacy to the Brazilian community as their home country begins preparations to host the Rio Olympics in 2016. Brazil, too, seeks peace and we hope that this concern to bring the world a lasting legacy of peace will unite many peoples across the nations in the years to come.
