York Minster’s Season of Remembrance

This year’s Season of Remembrance at York Minster will help us to engage with the extraordinary power of love, the grief and pain of bereavement and the opportunity to honour and to pay our respects to those who have died in past conflicts.

The Very Revd Dominic Barrington, Dean of York, said: “The pain of separation and loss, and the horrors of warfare, are no strangers to people across the globe, including in the city and diocese of York. The grief we experience at the death of friends or loved ones is very real, and can last a very long time, it is the call of the Church to help set this against the message of Christian hope contained in the Gospel.
