St Mary's Priory Abergavenny: The Priory Centre

The month at St Mary's Priory, Abergavenny

NOVEMBER IS THE MONTH OF REMEMBRANCE

 

The Church is working with the Town Council on a number of opportunities for the local community to pause and think during the run up to the Cenenary of the 1st Arnistice Day. 

We also have other opportunities to pause and remember in this month of remembrance.

CENTENARY OF THE ENDING OF CONFLICT IN WW1

A number of silhouettes have been placed around the church as a reminder of those who gave their live sin the war – some of them at a very young age. These silhouettes will also form the centre piece of an event following the Act of Remembrance on November 11th. A display of poppies will be created at the Priory alongside others at key points in the town.

At 7pm on Saturday, November 10th (The Eve of the Centenary of the Ending of Hostilities) The Gwent Bach Choir are staging a Concert in Church.

Programme includes: Mozart’s Requiem; Purcell’s Funeral Sentences and
Handel’s The Ways of Zion do Mourn

Our remembrance will end will us bell ringers joining  a national peel of church bells at 7.10pm on Sunday, November 11th. Church bells across the UK remained restricted throughout the course of the war and only rang freely once Armistice was declared on 11 November 1918.
