BRADFORD Cathedral will be supporting the National Day of Reflection next week, marking the second anniversary of when lockdown began in the UK.

People will come together on 23 March to remember the people who passed away during the pandemic, as well as to show support for those who are grieving.

The impact of Covid-19 will be referenced in the daily prayers held at the Cathedral, and a minute’s silence will be observed at 12pm, which is being marked at cathedrals and public venues across the country.

The Revd Canon Paul Maybury, Acting Dean at Bradford Cathedral, said: "So much has been endured over the past two years, and so much has changed for many of us and for our world.

“We thank God for his faithfulness, comfort in grief and suffering and commit ourselves to creating a better future for all. Please join me on this important anniversary."
