A Service of Remembrance

SERVICE OF REMEMBRANCE

By Paul Dickson

November 11 this year marks the 99th anniversary of the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I, which took effect at eleven o’clock in the morning — the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918. It was believed to have been “the war to end all wars.”

The war lasted four years with twenty countries supplying some fifty five million soldiers, of which almost nine million were killed and millions more suffered wounds—some of which altered their lives forever.

Statistics will never record the true effect of suffering and loss of life by civilians.

For the fourth year, a Memorial Liturgy in memory of all those who gave their lives in the service of their country will be held to commemorate the Armistice Day/Veterans Day service at St Paul’s Church, Cardo 6, on Saturday, November 11, commencing at 10:30am. All are welcome to come to the service.
