At the east end of the Cathedral are the striking blue windows of the 'Prisoners of Conscience'. The designation of these windows speaks of a person being obedient to deeply held conscientious conviction about what is right and true and speaks of the consequences for many who have stood firm in their obedience to their moral convictions, consequences in the form of actual imprisonment, torture and death. 

 

Under the window an Amnesty International Candle burns and each morning at 07.30 the Cathedral Community gather in prayer and we pray for Amnesty International’s Prisoner of Conscience for that month (see attachment below). Amnesty International work to protect, women, men and children wherever, freedom, truth and dignity are denied.  With over 3 million members worldwide they are the worlds’ largest grassroots human rights organization.
