Latest podcast: How we remember the dead | A reflective tour of the beautiful London Oratory

Traditionally the darker months of the year – particularly November – are a time for remembering; for remembrance services; the lighting of candles; special prayers and the blessing of graves.

In this special episode of the podcast, made in partnership with the Catholic Church in England and Wales, we offer an opportunity for reflection and remembrance in the company of Father George Bowen as he takes us on a tour of the beautiful London Oratory.
