St Paul's Cathedral celebrates Volunteers' Week 2020

This year’s Volunteers' week (1-7 June), St Paul Cathedral is celebrating the volunteers who contribute so much to Cathedral life. 

Volunteers are an essential part of the St Paul’s Cathedral community. Volunteering has a long history at the Cathedral, notably the volunteers who diligently kept watch over the building during the First and Second World Wars. 

Today, we have volunteers, offering their time, skills and expertise across the Cathedral. St Paul’s Cathedral says a huge thank you to our Working Friends and Guides, Bell Ringers, Wandsmen, Broderers, Servers, Pastoral Team, Flower Arrangers, Eucharistic Assistants, Lay Canons, Non-Executive Directors, Trustees, Council Members, Advisory Board Members and all the volunteers across different departments, notably Schools & Families and Collections.

The Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral the Very Revd Dr David Ison says “St Paul's is hugely grateful for the dedication, expertise and enthusiasm of our wonderful volunteers. We couldn't do what we do without them, and hundreds of thousands of people each year benefit from the gifts of service which they bring. This Volunteers' week is markedly different, because we can't be together to celebrate as we normally would. Although the Cathedral is closed and we are far apart, we hope our volunteers know that we remain ever thankful for their hard work and commitment, and look forward to the time when we can be together again.”
