London: Mass for World AIDS Day

A special Mass for World AIDS Day will take place at Farm Street Jesuit Church at 6pm this Thursday, to pray for and show solidarity with the 37 million women, children, and men living with HIV and AIDS - including the 100,000 here in the UK.

Music will be provided by the Beacon Music Group. The celebrant will be Monsignor Keith Barltrop. The Mass will be followed by refreshments in the Parish Hall and a retiring collection will be taken for the Mildmay Hospital.

The side-chapel of Saint Aloysius Gonzaga, patron saint of people living with HIV/AIDS, will display the Catholic AIDS Memorial Book and Names Quilt of Catholics for AIDS Prevention & Support. A section of the UK Names Quilt will also be displayed as part of the London-wide AIDS Quilt Trail, from 30 November - 5 December.

The Mass will take place at 6pm on Thursday, 1 December at the Church of the Immaculate Conception, 114 Mount Street, Mayfair, London W1K 3AH.
