On 9th August, from 6.30-7.30 pm, an ecumenical service organised by Pax Christi (020 8203 4884) will take place at Sacred Heart Chapel, situated on Horseferry Road, SW1P 2EF, in memory of the 72nd anniversary of Blessed Franz Jagerstatter’s execution in 1943 for refusing to serve in Hitler’s army. Franz Jagerstatter was beatified in October 2007. Following the service, there will be an interfaith Peace Walk to the London Peace Pagoda in Battersea Park for a Floating Lantern Ceremony. This will begin at dusk to commemorate the 70th Anniversary for victims of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and all wars.
The ceremony seeks to reflect on the horrors of war in an atomic age and to pray together for peace and harmony between all people and nations.
