Light of remembrance

31 May 2013

Derek Ralph

THE 71st anniversary of the bombing of the city of York coincided, this year, with the first anniversary of the partnership that St Martin's, Coney Street, now has with the Community of the Cross of Nails. Their Act of Remembrance, led by the Revd David Simpson, included the "Lighting of Lanterns" among the ruins of the bombed part of the church.

Mr Simpson held the peace candle; prayers were offered for peace, justice, and reconciliation; and all casualties of war were remembered. The lanterns (lit candles in white paper bags) were placed by members of the congregation.
