Remembering those who have passed on

​​The start of November is a time when the Christian church celebrates two important days, known as All Saints and All Souls.

All Saints is a joyful occasion when we give thanks for inspirational Christians who have gone before us as followers of Christ. It is associated with Halloween (meaning the eve of All Saints), a reminder how this feast was once part of mainstream culture.

All Souls is a more sombre commemoration and day of prayer for all those we have known and loved and who have passed on.

Leeds Minster will be celebrating both these occasions on the weekend of 30-31 October.

  • St Peter’s Singers' recital Songs of Solace at 4.30pm on Saturday offers space to reflect and remember those who have died in the pandemic while listening to beautiful, transcendent music written for and in moments of grief.
  • On Sunday morning, our main Eucharist (Service of Thanksgiving) at 10.30 am will celebrate those who have gone before us in the faith. Music will include the wonderful setting of the Mass written by Herbert Howells for Kings College, Cambridge.
  • On Sunday evening (5.30pm) the service will take the form of a more solemn Requiem Mass ('Mass for the dead') in memory of all those who have died. It will be sung by the Minster choir to the music of Gabriel Fauré. 

There is no admission charge for any of these events and you will be most welcome to join us.
