Me­mo­rial ser­vice to be held at All Saints, In­ver­aray

Argyllshire Advertiser - - DISTRICT NEWS -

AN AN­NUAL me­mo­rial ser­vice for all those who died in World War I will be held at All Saints, In­ver­aray, by the bell tower on Satur­day Novem­ber 11 at 12.30pm.

A half muf­fled quar­ter peal will be rung by the Scot­tish As­so­ci­a­tion of change prior to the ser­vice. The St Maura Singers will also be per­fom­ing Wm Byrd’s Mass in three parts to ac­com­pany the bells.

The Rev Canon Si­mon Macken­zie said: ‘We in­vite both lo­cals and vis­i­tors to this beau­ti­ful and poign- ant ser­vice. ‘Do this in mem­ory of me’ is the com­mand we fol­low.

‘Mem­ory is im­por­tant, but only if we learn from the past. To­day’s politi­cians are far too quick to turn to blame and Jin­go­ism. That is the path to dis­as­ter. The past de­mands clear sight from us. To see, to un­der­stand, to weep, to pray, to for­give.

‘That means to re­solve never again to turn to war; to make those who were once our en­e­mies our friends; and to say noth­ing that could harm an­other.’
