3 pm St Katherines Loversall
We celebrate St David and also remember the work of St John's Hospice and those who they have helped.
Many Welsh people wear one or both of the national emblems of Wales on their lapel to celebrate St. David: the daffodil(a generic Welsh symbol which is in season during March) or the leek(Saint David's personal symbol) on this day. The association between leeks and daffodils is strengthened by the fact that they have similar names in Welsh, Cenhinen (leek) and Cenhinen Pedr (daffodil, literally "Peter's leek").
We plan to fill St Katherines Loversall with Daffodils for the service. We invite those who have been touched by the work of St John’s Hospice to come along to the service. During the service there will be an opportunity to rember people who have died at the hospice. We hope those attending will bring a bunch of daffodils and during the service we will assmbe a display using these daffodils.
We will make a collection at the service for the work of the Hospice.
