In November there is a focus on remembering at St Edmundsbury Cathedral. With All Saints and All Souls we remember people of faith in past generations. On Remembrance Sunday we remember people who have died for their country in wars. Remembering is part of knowing who we are. That is why the loss of memory in diseases like dementia is so devastating. When we remember we know that the past is not over, but is part of the present. When we remember the people and events that have shaped our lives we can understand more about ourselves and about God's presence with us now. You are welcome to remember at St Edmundsbury Cathedral.
