A list of remembrance and commemoration of the Faithful Departed from Covid-19

The ancient walls of Saint Patrick’s Cathedral are steeped in the prayers and praises of all who have worshipped here for more than 800 years. Through each succeeding generation, God has poured out his love, mercy and grace through word and sacrament, and by his abiding presence and peace. In times of crisis, and human need, we have always afforded the opportunity, to worshipper and visitor alike, of praying for all who need God’s help, and, in the case of bereavement, of offering solidarity with them, by signing a Book of Condolence. Over these difficult days, the Cathedral has had to close to worshippers and tourists, but that does not mean that we fail to respond to those who suffer as a result of Covid-19. We continue to remember them in our prayers here, and, in addition, we are providing a ‘virtual’ Book of Condolences which you may ‘sign on-line’ if you have been bereaved by the death of a loved one as a result of the virus. Responses will be received by the Cathedral clergy and staff. By giving permission for your message to be shared, you consent to its use through digital and printed channels.
