A prayer for peace on a street called Hope

Bishop Paul met Archbishop Malcolm McMahon on Liverpool’s Hope Street to record a prayer for peace for a special edition of the BBC TV programme ‘Songs of Praise’.

The programme to be shown on Sunday 21 September follows new Church initiatives and concludes with the prayer to mark the International Day of Peace.
Archbishop Malcolm said, ‘I had spoken with Bishop Paul on the phone and it was a pleasure to meet him in person.  It is fitting that our meeting should celebrate our commitment to unity and peace and should take place in Hope Street, which for many years has by its very name symbolised those aspirations.’
