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.
Widely considered to be one of the world’s most beautiful buildings and a powerful symbol of the splendour of London, St Paul’s Cathedral is a
breathtaking events venue.
The service (November 22) was preached by the Reverend John D'Elia and the US Ambassador to the UK, Louis Susman, delivered an address.
He said: "Here in London, we recognize America’s solid partnership with the United Kingdom and the British people. There is no more
powerful example of it than this annual Thanksgiving Service at St Paul’s. That such an acclaimed British institution hosts a distinctly
American holiday is testimony to the depth of our special relationship. Indeed, this Cathedral is itself a great symbol of the unbreakable
bonds that unite our two nations."
