Westminster Cathedral
Ambrosden Avenue

SW1P 1QW


Will you join with us and persecuted Christians around the world as we come 'Together in Faith' this May?

Our Night of Witness aims to bring religious freedom to the forefront of public debate and give a voice to millions of suffering Christians around the world.

As attacks against Christians – and Christianity itself – become more prevalent, please help us to give a voice to the persecuted Church.

Taking our lead from Pope Benedict XVI, we are hosting a public witness event at Westminster Cathedral and on the cathedral piazza, to:

  • Give a voice to Christians and others persecuted for their faith
  • Remind society of the gift of religious liberty
  • Call on the government to make religious freedom a diplomatic priority

Guests who have agreed to take part in the Night of Witness include:
NB We regret that Monsignor Roko Taban Mousa from Sudan will no longer be able to join us.

Archbishop Joseph Coutts from Pakistan
Bishop Joannes Zakaria from Egypt
Bishop Declan Lang of Clifton
Archbishop Vincent Nichols of Westminster – greeting participants on the piazza
British Pakistani Christian Association
Iraqi Christians in Need
Priests and faithful from Iraq, Pakistan, Zimbabwe, Sudan, Nigeria, Sri Lanka and Lithuania
Performers on the Night of Witness include:
Catholic band ooberfuse, winners of the World Youth Day 2011 global song contest
Eliot Smith Dance Company debuting new piece Persecuted and Forgotten
Singer Helen Munt
West End Gospel Choir
Urdu Christian musician Hammad Baily
Catholic poet Sarah de Nordwall

Programme for the Night of Witness

Please join us for all or part of this inspiring evening:

5.30pm Sung Mass to remember the modern-day martyrs to the Faith, concelebrated by Archbishop Joseph Coutts of Karachi, Pakistan, Bishop Joannes Zakaria of Luxor, Egypt, and Bishop Declan Lang of Clifton.

6.30pm Rally for Religious Freedom on the cathedral piazza, celebrating our faith through speeches, music, drama, dance, poetry and film, with groups from Iraqi, Pakistani, Sudanese and Egyptian communities in the UK, as well as others.

7.30-8.30pm Solemn, candlelit vigil in Westminster Cathedral – in thanksgiving for the inspirational sacrifice of Christians today.

Please come 'Together in Faith' as Christians to make our concerns heard
Through music, prayer and speeches by guests from Pakistan, Egypt and the UK we will explore what it means to be a Christian today – both at home and abroad. And, through examples of the courage and faith of others, we can grow in faith
and resolve 'to stand in the public square and proclaim the Lord'.

The vigil will also be a public statement about our own right to religious freedom.

To find out how you, your parish, school or group can participate please email witness@acnuk.org or call us on 020 8642 8668.

Faisalabad: Catholics mourn the passing of Sister Alessia, the 'Mother Teresa of Pakistan'


Faisalabad (AsiaNews) - The Catholic community is mourning the death of Sister Alessia (pictured). Known as the 'Mother Teresa of Pakistan, she was born in a small hamlet in Italy's Veneto region and spent 61 years of her life in mission in the Asian country, devoting her time to the marginalised, women, the poor. However, she will be especially remembered for her devotion to the disabled.

Sister Alessia's funeral was held last Monday in Faisalabad's cathedral in the presence of more than 350 priests, nuns, catechists, educators, students, media people, representatives of civil society organisations and ordinary worshippers. During the ceremony, participants paid tribute to her for her services to humanity.

During the Mass, Sister Sosan Buta laid out the main facts about Sister Alessia's life, describing her contributions to the growth of Pakistan's civil society and the Church's missionary work in the world.

Born on 18 November 1923 in Gasperina, in the municipality of Catanzaro (Calabria), Sister Alessia took her final vows with Dominican Sisters.

She arrived in Pakistan for the first time on 13 October 1951 and her first posting was in the Catholic village of Khushpur, Punjab, the birthplace of the late Shahbaz Bhatti, Pakistan's Minority Affairs minister who was assassinated on 2 March 2011.

Four years later, she was transferred to Francisabad, a Christian village near Shortkot, where she spent 26 years serving the local community.

In 1980, she moved again, for the last time, to Faisalabad this time. In the big city, she took charge of the 'Miss Haq Home', a Catholic charitable institution for children with disabilities where she spent the remainder of her life in mission and service.

"The death of Sister Alessia OP is a shock and a great loss to the Church," said Sister Sosan Buta. However, "while we mourn this loss, we promise to the soul of Sister Alessia that we will continue her mission for the poor, the weak and the voiceless."

"Sister Alessia was so kind, philanthropic and gregarious to every human being," said Sister Sabina, an educator at the Sacred Heart School in Faisalabad.

Although born in Italy, "she was more Pakistani than us. She was filled with maternal love for all of us. For this reason, we, her fellow co-workers, used to call her mother. She was a true follower of Saint Catherine. May her soul rest in peace."

"Sister Alessia was the Mother Teresa of Pakistan," said Fr Khalid Rashid Asi, vicar general of Diocese of Faisalabad, "because she devoted her entire life to the downtrodden and oppressed. We are very grateful to her for her social and spiritual service."
