Spirit in the City, 9-10 June 2017

If you’re in London on the second weekend of June, go along to Leicester Square for Spirit in the City, the Catholic festival in the heart of the Capital.

At Notre Dame de France on Friday evening, you can see the London premiere of Romero – Heartbeat of El Salvador, Rise Theatre’s new play examining the life and legacy of Oscar Romero in his centenary year. Saturday’s wide-ranging programme offers live music from artists including Oompah Brass and Soul Sanctuary Gospel. There are workshops every half hour through the afternoon, a conference exploring Christian responses to the refugee crisis, prayer tent for Adoration and worship, and a final Mass at the end of the day.
