As the oldest site of continuous Christian worship St Alban’s Cathedral has seen many an event over the centuries. Countless pilgrims have come to honour St Alban’s sacrifice and other prayers at his shrine. And on Sunday 17th December 2017 there is yet another special reason to attend this beautiful and historic Cathedral – and enjoy an afternoon of festive carols and Christmas readings in aid of The Hospice of St Francis.
The stunning St Albans Cathedral event is the perfect opportunity to bring family and friends together at this special time of year to support one of a number of important local causes. The Hospice of St Francis provides free care and support when it matters most to over 2,000 people every year from Hertfordshire and in and around St Albans and Harpenden.
They do everything possible to help people living with a progressive or life-limiting condition to live their life well and on their own terms at the hardest of times. They also support families, carers and children affected by the illness of a loved one. To be able to offer the amazing five volunteers to every paid member of staff the Hospice supporters aim to raise over £5 million each year so they can provide life-enriching, free care.
The concert will include performances from Harpenden Choral Society, led by conductor John Andrews and Sir John Lawes School Choir. If you can’t make it you can always this time you can always visit www.stfrancis.org.uk to hear more about the charity and other upcoming events.
