Litany of Reconciliation

Following the bombing of Coventry Cathedral in 1940, Provost Howard had the words “Forgive Forgive” inscribed on the wall behind the Altar of the ruined building. These words are used as the response in the Coventry Litany of Reconciliation, which is prayed in the new Coventry Cathedral every weekday at noon and around the world on Friday at noon by churches who are part of the Community of the Cross of Nails. All Saints Cathedral is a part of this community. In response to a visit from Canon David Stone from Coventry this past summer and Bishop’s Jane call for prayers for peace during the current time, the Cathedral will be engaging in this regular Friday service starting September 5. So come and pray for peace and for reconciliation among all peoples and in our own lives.
