Cathedral and Shrine turn red to highlight persecution 

Two major Catholic locations in Norfolk will turn red on Wednesday November 22 to help to highlight the importance of religious freedom and the persecution of Christians.

Organised nationally by Aid to the Church in Need, November 22, has been called Red Wednesday.

“Throughout the country churches and cathedrals will be lit up in red as a mark of respect to modern day martyred Christians,” said East Anglia Area Secretary Tamsyn Filby

In Norwich, the Cathedral of St John the Baptist will be lit up in red and Bishop Alan Hopes will celebrate a Mass for persecuted Christians.  In addition, the Catholic National Shrine at Walsingham will also turn red.

For further information visit the Red Wednesday website.
