Remembering Manchester a year on


Over the past year Chester Cathedral has welcomed some of the families of those killed in the Manchester Bombing, including at the funeral of PC Elaine McIver. The Cathedral will be offering prayers of remembrance throughout the day on 22nd May 2018 and at special services and events at 12.30pm, 2.00pm (with the Lighting for Peace with the Lord Mayor of Chester) and 5.30pm. All are welcome to join us

We remember

Megan, Elaine, Courtney, Philip, Wendy, Elidh, Chloe, Liam, Sorrell, Michelle, Jane, Nell, Martyn, Angelika, Marcin, Olivia, Alison, Lisa, Kelly, Saffie Rose, Georgina, John.

From a prayer adapted from Revd Rachel Mann

     In the midst of our fears, and the fierce pain of loss; when our commitment to   

     justice and mercy and kindness is tested by death and terror, be with us, O Lord.

    Today let us mourn, let us hold before God those who died

    and their families and friends who remember them with love and affection

    Help us to continue to work for a world of compassion and reconciliation. Amen.
