Cathedral Hosts Platinum Jubilee Service

By on June 1, 2022

This year marks the 70th Anniversary of the accession of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth. To commemorate this extraordinary occasion, there will be a special service of Choral Evensong at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 5 at Christ’s Church Cathedral, where the whole diocese is invited to join together, in person or online. Bishop Susan Bell will preach, and our time of worship will include music from the coronation in 1953, as well as the anthem “In Our Service,” which has been specially commissioned by the Royal Schools of Church Music to mark this Platinum Jubilee. Most importantly, the service will be an opportunity to give thanks for God’s blessings through the past 70 years of her reign as Queen of Canada, and to pray eagerly for our future together; for healing, for peace, for truth, for reconciliation, for our leaders, for the nations of the world, and a reign of love that is on earth as it is in heaven.
