We celebrate all the Saints in light and join in with the worship of heaven in this jubilant service with music from the Vicars Choral and Choral Scholars of the Choir of York Minster.
The day forms part of a Season of Remembrance at York Minster which includes a day to remember those who have died on All Souls’ Day on Thursday 2 November, the observation of the national two minutes’ silence on Saturday 11 November at 11am, and the annual service of Thanksgiving and Commemoration for Remembrance Sunday on 12 November.
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.
“We are privileged and delighted at York Minster to offer services of remembrance, as well as the opportunity simply to come to the cathedral to pray, light a candle or just sit quietly as we give thanks for those whom we have loved and lost.”
