Solemn Requiem Eucharist

Add to My Calendar

Sunday, November 11, 2018
11:00 am High Altar


Remembrance Sunday at Saint Thomas is kept with services at 8am and 9am, a Solemn Requiem at 11am, and a Choral Evensong at 4pm in memory of those who have given their lives in service of our country.


O God, the Maker and Redeemer of all believers: Grant to the faithful departed the unsearchable benefits of the passion of thy Son; that on the day of his appearing they may be manifested as thy children; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

This Solemn Requiem, one of the many jewels in the liturgical crown of our worship life at Saint Thomas, begins and ends in silence. In between, glorious music, full of yearning and hope fills the church and our hearts as we remember all those who have gone before us. Complete details of the service, including the texts of the music selections, may be seen in the leaflet posted to the bottom of this page, where you will also find a link to the webcast during and after the service.
