The Cathedral Remembers

The Cathedral Remembers

Hundreds of people gathered at the Cathedral this week to remember those who gave their lives in the cause of freedom and peace.

On Sunday, 9 November, the Dean of Canterbury, the Very Revd Dr Robert Willis, welcomed a packed congregation which included Civic guests and members of the Armed forces to a Special Service of Remembrance.

On Tuesday, 11 November, more than a hundred people gathered in the South East Transept of the Cathedral at 11:00 to remember those who gave their lives in the service of God and neighbour; and those who currently suffer through war, and are in need. After the Two Minutes’ Silence and Act of Remembrance, pages in the Books of Remembrance were turned, and poppy wreaths were laid by representatives of the Buffs (the Royal East Kent Regiment), The Queen’s Regiment, The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment and their allied Regiment, The Queen’s Own Rifles of Canada, the Kent Yeomanry, and the 21st Lancers.
