St Lawrence will mark the 2019 Remembrance Sunday minute's silence as part of the 10:15am Sung Eucharist. During our 6pm Choral Evensong service the names of the parish war dead will be read out and a wreath will be laid as we welcome the York Normandy Veterans back to St Lawrence. You are warmly invited to join us on this solemn day of remembrance.
St Lawrence is proud to be the local focus for the remembrance of those who served and especially those who lost their lives in the terrible conflicts of the modern age, looking after the war memorials to those lost from our part of York in both the First and Second World Wars. You can read about St Lawrence and the First World War here. St Lawrence was honoured to welcome the York Normandy Veterans for a special service of Choral Matins on 22nd June this year in remembrance of the historic events of D Day and the Normandy campaign 75 years ago this summer, in thanksgiving for the outcome of those events, the virtues of those who served, and the safe return of those who did return.
