Saturday 28th of June will be the centenary of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, the event which triggered the War. With this in mind, the Justice & Peace Commissions of Westminster, Southwark, and Brentwood Dioceses have joined with Pax Christi to organise a “Walk for Peace” on the day.
The walk begins at 10.00am at the statue of Gandhi in Tavistock Square WC1, and will visit many other sites and memorials associated with people who have worked for peace, such as the Westminster Abbey statues of the 20th century martyrs. Those preferring a shorter walk may join in at 11.30am at the Edith Cavell Statue by St Martin-in-the-Fields church, Trafalgar Square. The walk will conclude at 2.30pm with a short service in the Tibetan Peace Garden at the Imperial War Museum.
