Cardinal Vincent Remembers the Victims of the London Bombings

Cardinal Vincent joined the Church of England Bishop of London Richard Chartres, Prime Minister David Cameron and the Duke of York at a Service of Remembrance at St Paul's Cathedral on 7 July to mark the tenth anniversary of the London bombings.

'Today is a day of sadness for many as we remember the victims of the terrorist attacks in London 10 years ago,' said the Cardinal. 

'It is also a day when we salute the bravery of the emergency services and remember the dignity of the victims’ families. We honour the memory of those who died and pray for the repose of their souls. In our remembrance we commit ourselves again to be resolute in the face of violence and in our prayers we call on God to have mercy on us, heal us and keep us safe in the midst of trouble.'

In Westminster Cathedral tonight, 8 July, Bishop Nicholas Hudson will celebrate Mass in memory of those who died in the attacks. The Mass will begin at 5.30pm and all are welcome to attend.
