We give you thanks, our God and Father,

and all they accomplished in their time;

in the world to come;
and for our communion with them now
in your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Remembrance Sunday Service - 8th November 2020

In Portugal and throughout Europe, owing to the Covid 19 pandemic, most Remembrance Sunday services are being cancelled. In this country the only ceremony that day will be at St George’s Church, Lisbon, at 10:45. It will be out-of-doors in the Cemetery and in-person attendance will be restricted to the participants themselves. It will, however, be transmitted live from the Chaplaincy Facebook page, so that all may attend, wherever they are.

Please note that Revd. Ed Hanson will be transmitting Morning Prayer that day, as usual, at 09:30.
