Liverpool will host its annual Civic Service on Thursday 4 October, against a stunning and unique backdrop at the Anglican Cathedral.
A theatrical multimedia event inspired by the tragic events of the Titanic is taking place at the Cathedral all this week, and to tie in with the event, the theme of this year’s service will be ‘Liverpool – A city to Treasure’.
Liverpool’s Lord Mayor, Councillor Sharon Sullivan said: “‘Treasured’ is one of many events taking place across the city this year to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the tragic sinking of the Titanic.
“Liverpool is a city full of treasures, from the outstanding beauty of buildings such as the Town Hall and St Georges Hall, to the historical landmarks throughout the city and beyond.
“I hope that everyone involved in this years civic service will take the opportunity to reflect on the good things in their lives and give thanks for all that they treasure.”
Liverpool’s Lord Mayor Councillor Sharon Sullivan will lead a civic delegation which includes Mayor Joe Anderson and representatives of Liverpool’s different faith communities. Schoolchildren from East Prescot Road Nursery will lead the singing and pupils from Notre Dame Catholic College will take part in the readings.
The service will begin at 1.45pm when young people will lead a procession into the cathedral. Students from Notre Dame Catholic College for the Arts and pupils from the College’s “Young Arts” Primary Outreach Programme will present a number of cultural arts celebrating the theme of the Service.
