ECUMENICAL THOMAS MASS AT ST GEORGE'S RC CATHEDRAL
Sunday 31 October
6pm at St George's RC Cathedral, Lambeth Road
Map: http://quicklink.se1direct.co.uk/?id=820
In recent years Southwark's Anglican Cathedral and St
Olav's Norwegian Church, Rotherhithe, have successfully
created closer links with each other, especially in the
area of Eucharistic celebrations. Whilst recognising
any differences, doubts or questions of faith  they may
have about each other, they, like the Apostle Thomas
the Doubter, seek with faith to foster what they hold
in common with each other rather than what makes them
different.  With music from Taize and Iona. Followed by
refreshments.
