North and south of the Thames, preparing for the pope

The Archdiocese of Westminster, one of two Catholic archdioceses in London, has launched a blog for Pope Benedict XVI’s mid-September visit. The colorful blog includes information about preparations for the papal visit as well as interesting facts such as how fast the popemobile can go. Visit the blog here.

The Archdiocese of Southwark, which covers London south of the Thames River, also is preparing for the pope’s brief stay in the city. The archdiocese notes that although the pope’s public events are in Westminster Archdiocese, there will be plenty of opportunities to see the pontiff in Southwark Archdiocese. For instance, the apostolic nunciature, where Pope Benedict will stay, is in the Southwark Archdiocese.
