Mass for migrant workers at Westminster Cathedral

 More than 2,000 Catholic migrants living and working in London are expected to attend a special Mass for Migrants, which will be celebrated at Westminster Cathedral on Monday, 4 May, (the Feast of St Joseph the Worker) at 10.30am.

The Mass will reflect the tremendous diversity of London's Catholic community, with music from across the globe. A number of dignitaries, including the Lord Mayor of Westminster and Ambassadors from EU and other countries are expected to attend the Mass.

The Mass will be celebrated by Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor and Thomas McMahon, Bishop of Brentwood. The Homily will be given by Bishop Pat Lynch, Auxiliary Bishop of Southwark. This will be the fourth Mass for Migrants to have been organised jointly by the Diocese of Westminster, the Archdiocese of Southwark and the Diocese of Brentwood and supported by their Justice and Peace Commissions.

For the first time, similar services will take place at Westminster Abbey and the Methodist Central Hall at the same time, celebrating the place of the immigrant in modern Britain.
