National Day of Reflection

National Day of Reflection 2022

On 23 March 2022, it will be two years since the first UK lockdown. Whether a
death is recent or long ago, and whether or not it was due to Covid-19, every
year there are millions of people bereaved. The restrictions we’ve all been
living under have meant that many people have had to grieve without friends
and family around them.

Wednesday 23rd March will be a National Day of Reflection, coordinated by the
charity Marie Curie and officially supported by the Church of England, a special
day to reflect together on loss and grief.

All Saints Wokingham will be hosting a coffee morning at 11am on 23rd March,
at the Cornerstone on Norrey’s Avenue, with the opportunity to come and
share coffee and cake, fellowship, memories of your loved ones, and observe a
minute’s silence at 12noon.

There will also be a Wall of Remembrance to which all are welcome to
contribute photos, names or prayers. If you are unable to come along on the
day, then do email in contributions for the Wall of Remembrance to
parishoffice@allsaintswokingham.org.uk and listen out for the church bells to
observe the minutes silence.

 

 

Dear God,
Be with us as we think about all that has changed,
And help us to trust that you are always with us.
Be close to us as we remember those who have died,
And help us to trust they are at peace with you.
Show us how to reach out to others with kindness and care,
So that hope shines out in every heart and home,
Amen
