The Pax Christi Icon has been travelling in relay between five Westminster parishes in the last month as part of the 100 Days of Peace initiative. The Icon was welcomed first to St Patrick's, Wapping, on 8th June 2012, 50 Days before the start of the Olympic Games, and progressed on to St John Vianney's, West Green Road, Our Lady's St John's Wood, St Joseph's and the English Martyrs, Bishop's Stortford, and finally the Catholic Churches of Welwyn Garden City.
The aim is to create a 'ring of prayer' around the capital to pray for a peaceful Games. The Icon is currently at Brentwood Cathedral and will travel to parishes in Brentwood and Southwark Dioceses until 50 days after the end of the Paralympic Games, finishing at Southwark Cathedral.
A final Mass will be held at St George's Cathedral, Southwark, on 28th October 2012, 3.00pm.
