We were privileged to welcome over 500 people to our Remembrance services yesterday, many coming from the Cenotaph with the military representatives and dignitaries.

The readings of the young people who recounted Doncaster’s reaction to the Armistice were warm and vivid, giving us a glimpse of the elation, relief and joy at the news.

The Minster Choir and trumpeter’s moving tribute For the Fallen, never fails to bring tears.

As you will see in the photographs below, the Minster Flower Guild made their own tributes with some wonderful poppy arrangements. These are still available to see in the Minster, so pop along and see them for yourself.

And to further enhance the day, our very own Minster Ringers made the following contribution:

“....we rang Grandsire Triples, Stedman Triples, rounds and call changes on 8 all half muffled.
Our new learners have been practicing really hard for this occasion, and they did marvellous, all ringing together in rounds and call changes.”
“Additional ringing also took place at 7:05 until 7:15, to mark the official end of WW1.”

So if you were out and about in the town last night you will have been able to hear our wonderful bells.

All of this from Your Minster with our thanks and blessings.

We were out delivering flyers today in the town centre for the Museum of the Moon at Doncaster Minster as part of DN Light Festival by Right Up Our Street... Each person no matter their age or background was fascinated. One of the women we spoke to said that her 2 year old daughter is always asking her where the moon is during the day.... Imagine how shocked she's going to be when she sees that it's in the Minster from Friday this week for 9 days! ... See MoreSee Less

This Sunday is not only Remembrance Day, but it marks a century since the formal end of World War 1 in 1918. The Doncaster Minster Flower Guild has been decorating the church in readiness for Sunday and it looks beautiful! There is a time of prayer at the Minster at 10.55am which incorporates the 2 minute silence, whilst at the cenotaph on Bennetthorpe there is also an act of remembrance at 11am. There is a service at the Minster when those who have been at the cenotaph arrive at the church, usually at around 11.45am having processed through the town. Those wishing to attend both of the services are very welcome to do so. ... See MoreSee Less
