SJBC musicians at national Red Wednesday service

RedWedsBattereaSJBC 500


by Fr David O'Malley SDB

Public buildings in London were bathed in red light as students from St John Bosco College, Battersea helped to lead the music at the Nnational Red Wednesday service in Westminster Cathedral on November 27th. Over 1000 people attended the service and the walk of witness from Parliament.

Representatives of all faiths and none attended to draw attention to the persecution of people for their religious beliefs. The speakers pointed out that Christians are the group most discriminated against in the world.

Victor and Natalie, SJBC students, sang poignantly of the need for hope and love in building community. It was also one of the first opportunities to reveal the new school steel band, under the leadership of Mr Dallman. It sounded wonderful in that huge cathedral space.

The Red Wednesday event was organised by Fr Andrew Ebrahim. The event nationally was organised by Aid to the Church in Need. (ACN)
