Defence Ministry, London. Wed 5 March 2014
Bruce Kent was among those attending the liturgy of prayer and resistance against the deployment of weapons of mass destruction
People come together for the start of the liturgy
and stand in a circle in the Embankment gardens
A woman holds a cross. Others have banners and placards
The liturgy is introduced. There is a copy on the Pax Christi web site
Water is blessed
and poured onto the charocal which will be used to make crosses on the foreheads of those taking part
Marking people's heads with a cross
There was a silent procession to the pavement opposite the Ministry of Defence
where there were more readings and prayers
People took purple ribbons and tied them to the cross
The ribbons were "in memory of a place/people in need of peace"
The procession then moved slowly and in silence to the end of the road, crossed and walked back
to the Ministry of Defence.
