National Day of Reflection - March 23rd

 

NATIONAL DAY OF REFLECTION – Tuesday, 23 March

On 23 March, it will be one year since the first UK lockdown. Since then, millions of people have been bereaved, both as a result of Covid-19 and due to other causes. The restrictions we’ve all been living under have meant that many people have had to grieve without the comfort of having friends and family around them.

Marie Curie, a charity which supports people around the event of a terminal diagnosis, has organised a National Day of Reflection to acknowledge grief and loss over the last year. There will be a minute’s silence at 12 noon to create a moment that shows support for the millions of people who’ve been bereaved, followed by the tolling of the church bell. St. Michael’s will be open for private prayer between 11.00am. and 1.00pm. that day.
