Leeds Diocese – Dementia Friendly Carol Service, 8th December 2018

Thank you to everyone who supported the first Dementia Friendly Service of Lessons and Carols at the Cathedral Church of St Anne this weekend.

The children from Holy Rosary and St Anne’s Catholic Primary School sang beautifully and their teachers Jo and Liz were there to lead them.  One person said “The choir were just beautiful. I could have listened to them and watched them all afternoon. Gorgeous expressions and good little singers. A credit to the school.”

Nearly everyone came next door to Wheeler Hall after the Service for mince pies and mulled wine.  Thanks to Tesco Express St Paul’s store who donated a lot of the refreshments.  It was a warm gathering with old friends reconnected and new friends made, despite wet and windy weather and the night drawing in.

“Yet, in thy dark streets shineth the everlasting light; the hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight.”  Phillips Brooks
