Season of Remembrance 2020

We are approaching the Season of Remembrance, when we give thanks for those who have enlivened and inspired our faith (All Saints’, 1st November), those who have touched our lives (All Souls’, 2nd November), and Remembrance Sunday (8th November).

Our ‘ritual’ remembrances – the opportunity to light a candle and remember someone by name – can be an important part of our grieving and the healing of our grief.

Below are details of our All Souls’ commemoration for those who would like to take part.

Some of us may also feel the need to talk to someone about how a death has affected us and there is provision for this too; support is available to you through the Chaplains and the Cathedral’s Pastoral Team. 

All Souls’, Monday 2nd November

5pm - Sung Requiem Eucharist – a service of Holy Communion, remembering and praying for all those who have died.

This service offers an opportunity for us to commend to God those we continue to love in death as we loved them in life. It is traditional for the names for departed loved ones to be presented in the service and you are invited to offer the names of those dear to you if you wish to.

If you would like to include a name of a loved one in the order of service, please email liturgy@stpaulscathedral.org.uk to submit a name by 10am on Friday 16th October.

All names must be submitted by email this year to avoid the sharing of paper slips.

Additional paper copies of the order of service and the list of those remembered will be available for those not able to attend the service, and these will also be made available in electronic format.

Remember Me 

In May 2020, St Paul's Cathedral launched Remember Me, an online book of remembrance for all those who have been living in the UK who have died as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. People of all faiths, beliefs or none are invited to contribute to Remember Me.  

Family, friends and carers of those who have died can submit, free of charge, the name, photograph and a short message in honour of a deceased person via the Remember Me website. The deceased person must have been living in the UK. Remember Me will be open for entries for as long as needed. 

Visit www.rememberme2020.uk to submit an online memorial.
