November is the month of remembering. 1 November is All Saints and we remember people of faith from the past. 2 November is All Souls and we remember the people we love who have died. 5 November in our country is Bonfire Night and we remember Guy Fawkes, gun powder and treason. 11 November is Remembrance Day and we remember the fallen in war – especially poignant in this centenary of the First World War. People come to St Edmundsbury Cathedral this month and every month to remember, to reflect on our mortality, and to look beyond death in hope. You are welcome to do the same.

 The ground on which St Edmundsbury Cathedral is built has been holy ground for over a thousand years. Every day of the year, Morning and Evening Prayer is said or sung and the Eucharist is celebrated. In addition, thousands of people come from all over Suffolk and beyond to worship God at special services throughout the year, which celebrate our common life and acknowledge our common concerns.
