Statement on the London Bridge Terror Attack

by Archbishop John Wilson
29th November 2019

It was deeply shocked and saddened to hear of the attack that took place on London Bridge on Friday evening, causing loss of life and injury. On behalf of the Catholic Community in the Archdiocese of Southwark I assure all those affected of our prayers, those who have died and those who suffered injuries, remembering also their families and loved ones. 

We also offer our sincere gratitude to the emergency services for their decisive action and we thank members of the public who moved swiftly and courageously to protect others without thought for themselves.

London is home to people from so many different countries, cultures and religions. We must never allow incidents such as this to divide us. Violence never solves anything. In the wake of such an awful assault on human life and dignity, we remain committed to sustaining our common life together in respectful tolerance and peace, working always for the common good of every person and our society as a whole.
