Light From Light
In celebration of the feast of All Saints at Lichfield Cathedral
As part of the Cathedral’s keeping of the feast of All Saints this year we will illuminating the outside of the cathedral with beams of light to penetrate the darkness of the evening sky.This is in celebration of the those who in their several generations have been lights in the world.
Inside the Cathedral, again light will be our theme and in collaboration with our Artist in Residence, Peter Walker, we will inviting people to add to the light as the walk through the Cathedral and to be the light as they leave – to be the light of the world in this our own generation.
We are inviting parishes specifically to ‘keep the date’ and try and bring your young people to the ‘Light from Light’ Youth Eucharist for All Saints.This will be at 22.00 on Friday 1 November 2019.We are suggesting that groups arrive at 2100 to see the illumination of the outside of the cathedral and to see and experience the engagement inside.It would be good to see a Cathedral full of people, particularly young people, on this occasion.
The celebrant at this service with be The Revd. Canon Andrew Stead (Canon Precentor – Liturgy, Music and Formation)
