Default Japan Tour: Memorial Cathedral of World Peace Hiroshima

????????

The Memorial Cathedral of World Peace in Hiroshima grew from the ashes of the Noboricho parish church that was destroyed in the atomic bombing of August 6, 1945.

The German pastor of the church, the Reverend Hugo Lassalle, was wounded in the bombing but determined to rebuild his church as a memorial to world peace.



Gaining the blessing of Pope Pius XII in Rome, Lassalle collected contributions from all around the world to obtain the funds to build the new Memorial Cathedral of World Peace, which was completed on 6 August 1954 and was designed by Japanese architect Murano Togo. Specific gifts from overseas include the pipe organ from Cologne in Germany. Laselle became a naturalized Japanese citizen in 1948 taking the name of Enomiya Mabiki.

Mass is said in Japanese, Portuguese, Tagalog and English.

The Memorial Cathedral of World Peace is located 10 minutes on foot south west of Hiroshima Station and close to Kanayamacho (Ginzancho) Station.
