Tuesday 1 November – 5.30pm
Solemn Eucharist for the Feast of All Saints Day
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 Remembering at the Minster which includes an installation in the Chapter House of the Yorkshire Speak Their Name memorial quilt (2 – 10 November), a day to remember those who have died on All Souls’ Day on Tuesday 2 November, the observation of the national two minutes’ silence on Friday 11 November at 11.00am, and the Service of Thanksgiving and Commemoration for Remembrance Sunday on 13 November.
York Minster’s Season of Remembering
This year’s Season of Remembering 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 Revd Canon Michael Smith, Acting Dean of York, said: “All of us carry in our hearts the memory of relatives, friends, colleagues and acquaintances who have died leaving us bereft. Many are still grieving for those who died during the pandemic when visiting the sick was difficult or impossible and attendance at funerals were limited. This year we will all also be remembering Queen Elizabeth II and all that she meant to us, our nation and the Commonwealth.
“We are providing a safe place for people to grieve, to remember, to honour and to pray for all their loved ones who have died, whether they died years ago or in recent months. We hope that people will attend services or simply just come to the Minster to sit, reflect, pray or to light a candle in memory of their loved ones.”
