BLESSING OF THE RIVER
Sunday 13 January
12.30pm on London Bridge
The congregations of Southwark Cathedral and the parish
church of St Magnus the Martyr in Lower Thames Street,
gather in the middle of London Bridge for the annual
ceremony of the blessing of the river. Since the building of
the first bridge across the Thames, the spiritual care of
all those who have used it has fallen to the parish churches
located at either end. In a ceremony that draws on
traditions throughout Europe, prayers are offered for all
those who use the river for work or leisure. All are invited
to join the congregations for this occasion.
