The Dean and Chapter of Blackburn Cathedral offer their deepest condolences to the Royal Family on the death of Her Majesty the Queen.
At this time of national mourning, the Cathedral is open to all to offer prayers and share memories. The Cathedral will be open from 8.30am on Friday 9th September and a book of condolence will be in place for any within our community to offer their condolences.
As we give thanks for the life of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, I am personally grateful for her devotion and service to our nation and her living faith in Jesus. Her Christmas messages reflected the deep faith she had and we pray now with many that her faith will be fulfilled and she might rest in peace.
Further details of arrangements will be available shortly.
A prayer …
whose throne is in heaven,
whose footstool is the earth;
we thank you for your servant, Elizabeth,
your faithful servant,
our beloved Queen.
As we mourn her passing
we give thanks for her witness
of devoted service,
and faithful dedication
and pray that we may embrace her values
and build your kingdom
today and always.
The Very Revd. Peter Howell-Jones
Dean of Blackburn
