Fenland town's churches offer day of reflection to mark anniversary of lockdown
Churches in March will be supporting the Marie Curie call for a National Day of Reflection tomorrow March 23, the anniversary of the start of the first UK lockdown.
Since the first lockdown began in March 2020, hundreds of thousands of people have died across the world and millions of people have been bereaved. Maire Curie is inviting people to “reflect on our collective loss, support those who've been bereaved, and hope for a brighter future”. People are invited to join a minute of silence at noon and to shine a light at 8pm, or just to take a moment to reflect during the day.
To assist people who would like to reflect in a quiet space, or to remember a loved one, St Wendreda’s Church, Church Street, will be open from 9 am until 3pm; and St Peter’s Church, High Street, will be open from noon until 8 pm, beginning with a minute’s silence at noon, and concluding with lighting of candles at 8pm.
A short Reflective Service will also be held via ZOOM at 11 am. If anyone would like to join this Service please contact Revd Jenny Webb 01354 650855 or firstname.lastname@example.org for ZOOM log-in details.
