Newly decorated chapel at Westminster Cathedral honours English martyrs - Independent Catholic News

Newly decorated chapel at Westminster Cathedral honours English martyrs - Independent Catholic News: A new decorative scheme commemorating forty English Catholic martyrs has recently been completed in the Chapel of St George and the English Martyrs in Westminster Cathedral. The chapel will be dedicated by Cardinal Vincent Nichols on 28 October. The chapel contains the cathedral's war memorial and its completion marks the centenary of the Battle of the Somme. The new design by Tom Phillips CBE RA links this event with another chapter in the nation's suffering, that of the English martyrs in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
