Your departed loved ones remembered at St Paul's

Owing to an overwhelming response in 2012, St Paul's is once again inviting people from across the world to submit the names of their lost loved ones, to be commemorated on All Souls' Day.

On Saturday 2 November, the Church remembers the Faithful Departed - those whom we love but see no longer.


At the 5pm Requiem Eucharist, a book containing the names of the departed who have been remembered in the past year at the Cathedral, together with prayer slips written before the service by members of the congregation, are carried forward and placed on the altar.

Congregation members then come forward and light candles in memory of departed loved ones.

Last year, the Cathedral invited members of its online Facebook and Twitter communities to submit names, which would then be collated and added to those placed on the Cathedral's altar. The response was overwhelming, with many hundreds of names coming from across the world, representing all faiths as well as those with no faith.

Once again, we will be inviting names:

All people who can, are invited to attend the Requiem Mass at 5pm this Saturday 2 November.

The Cathedral Choir will sing Gabriel Fauré's Messe de Requiem, accompanied by the City of London Sinfonia.

It is the will of my Father, that all who see the Son and believe in him may have eternal life; and I will raise them up on the last day.
John 6. 40
