St Anne's Cathedral, Belfast, progressing on foot to the Titanic Quarter Sunday 15th April at 3.30pm
There will be special service of commemoration and thanksgiving on the anniversary of the sinking of Titanic at St Anne’s Cathedral on Sunday 15 April at 3.30pm. It will begin by remembering those who died and include elements of the original memorial service in the Cathedral in 1912. The “Titanic Funeral Pall” will also be dedicated. It was commissioned by St Anne’s as a permanent reminder of the loss of life and of the Christian hope of resurrection.
As the service progresses it will reflect the trauma felt in Belfast in the aftermath of the sinking but move on to capture and celebrate the emergence of the Titanic Quarter.
Special guests and the congregation are invited to join clergy as they walk from the cathedral to the Titanic Quarter. They will stop for brief reflections at ‘The Kit’ and the Drawing Office, finishing at the Thompson Graving Dock.
