4:00 pm 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 special evensong is offered in honor of those who have given their lives and those who have served in the Armed Forces of our Country and for the Ninety-Eighth Annual Flag Service for the Patriotic and Historical Societies. This service also commemorates the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War and will be attended by Members of the Patriotic Societies and the Mountbatten Institute.
