Dedication of Romero Cross – Thursday 19th September 2013

You are warmly invited to an ecumenical service of prayer and dedication for the new Romero Cross being installed at St George’s Catholic Cathedral in Southwark, London. The service will take place on Thursday 19 September at 6.00 pm. Archbishop Peter Smith will preside and Archbishop Romero’s former Secretary, Msgr Ricardo Urioste from San Salvador, will preach.


Panels of the cross were flown in from El Salvador in May and are now in the process of being assembled.

 The Cross was commissioned by the Romero Trust from renowned Salvadoran artist Fernando Llort. It contains a reliquary with a fragment of Romero’s blood-stained alb. Panels of the 4 metre high cross were flown in from El Salvador and are in the process of being assembled. The Cross honours Archbishop Romero but it will also be dedicated to the late Bishop Michael Evans, a great admirer of Romero and co-founder of the Trust.

After the service, you are welcome, in Amigo Hall, (next to the Cathedral) for a drinks reception.
