Since the first lockdown began in 2020, hundreds or thousands of people have died. Too many lives have been cut short and millions have been bereaved
Behind the statistics and whatever the cause, every death had been devastating for the people left behind.
Join us on 23rd March, the anniversary of the first UK lockdown, for a National Day of Reflection to reflect on our collective loss, support those who’ve been bereaved, and hope for a bright future
How can you get involved?
From Saturday 20th March we will have the pictured cross outside the cathedral and we invite you to bring a daffodil and add it to the cross in memory of a loved one, or as a prayer for all the bereaved HERE
On Tuesday 23rd March we will be holding a special Evensong service to mark the Marie Curie National Day of Reflection
This service will be live streamed on our Facebook page at 5.45pm and the service will premier a new hymn ‘Mourner’s Hope’ written by the Cathedral – View the hymn lyric HERE

There are still tough times ahead, as the death toll continues to rise. This annual day will give us all time to pause and think about this unprecedented loss we’re facing, and support each other through grief in the years to come.
