masterpiece of Britain's most famous architect Sir Christopher Wren.
Behind the scenes, the cost of caring for St Paul's and continuing to deliver our central ministry and work is enormous and the generosity of
our supporters is critical.

breathtaking events venue.

25 October 2016

Committee for Minority Ethnic Anglican Concerns (CMEAC).
The year completes in 2017 with the launch of a new publication ‘Inspired Souls - Black Saints and Holy People from around the
St Paul's Canon Pastor the Revd Tricia Hillas noted:
“'If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants,' said Isaac Newton, recognising the debt he owed to those who had gone
before him. On this, All Saints Day, the church recognises and celebrates the inspired souls, the saints and holy people, whose lives and witness
encourage and guide us in our own response to God’s call.
"This year, as we mark All Saints Day, we take the opportunity to give especial thanks for the women and men of colour from around the world who
have gone before us and who are now part of the great cloud of witnesses.
"Coming from diverse backgrounds, representing many different nationalities and cultures, these black saints inspire us by their lives; they give
us hope amidst the changes and challenges of our own day.
"We are delighted to welcome supporters of CMEAC which works
for the full inclusion and participation of people of black and minority ethnic backgrounds at every level within the Church of England.'
Everyone is welcome to a sung Eucharist service on 1 November at 5pm.
The preacher will be the Revd Dr Sharon Prentis from St Mellitus College. Mezzo Soprano Melanie Marshall -
whose fans include Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robins - will sing, accompanied by St Paul's Sub-Organist Peter Holder. Music will include Anthems
