The theme this year is drawn from Psalm 9:18, ‘For the needy shall not always be forgotten, nor the hope of the poor perish forever’. On the 17th, Individuals are invited to bring contributions of non-perishable food items and gather at the Homeless Jesus statue in the cathedral grounds at 3:15 pm for an act of remembrance and commitment.
The congregation will then be invited to make their way into the cathedral for choral evensong, which will include an address by The Very Reverend John Collins. All non-perishable food items collected on the day will be donated to the Mendicity Institution.
