The Cathedral's Morning Service of Remembrance starts at 10.55am. Please be seated by this time. The morning service will include the 2 minute silence at 11am, and later in the service the laying of wreaths.
The Preacher is Canon Mark Niblock, Dean's Vicar, and choir anthems include "They shall not grow old" by Douglas Guest and "Lord, thou hast been our refuge" by Ralph Vaughan Williams.
At 3.30pm the cathedral will host A Service of Reflection for the Afternoon of Remembrance Sunday. The service will feature Belfast Cathedral Choir singing Duruflé’s Requiem. Singing of the Requiem will be interspersed with reflective readings from Scripture, and will include poetry by Wilfred Owen, Geoffrey Studdert Kennedy, Paul Muldoon and Khaled Hosseini.
