York Minster’s Season of Remembrance will take place throughout November, to honour those who have died.
This year’s Season of Remembrance will engage with the extraordinary power of love, the grief and pain of bereavement and the opportunity to pay respects to those who have died in past conflicts.
The programme of events and services include installations, evensong, music and commemorations.
The Revd Michael Smith, Canon Pastor at York Minster said: “All of us carry in our hearts the memory of relatives, friends, colleagues and acquaintances who have died leaving us bereft.
“In addition to those who died as a direct result of Covid-19, others died without contact with loved ones and often without the funerals and memorial services they deserved, leaving many with unresolved grief.”
“We are providing a safe place for people to grieve, to remember, to honour and to pray for all their loved ones who have died, whether they died years ago or in recent months,” the Revd Michael Smith added.
“We hope that people will come for worship and services or simply just come to the Minster to sit, reflect, pray or to light a candle in memory of their loved ones.”
