The charity Marie Curie is spearheading the campaign for a Day of Reflection to mark the two year anniversary of the beginning of the first UK lockdown – and to let bereaved people know that they are not alone.
Like last year, the day revolves around a “minute to reflect, a moment to connect” minute-long silence at midday.
This year community spaces and workplaces are also being asked to create ‘Walls of Reflection’ where people can write names, add pictures and mementos of people they are remembering.
There is planned activity throughout the day that churches can get involved with. The official hashtag is #DayofReflection
Churches can register their interest in being involved on the Marie Curie website here – and there are practical ideas developed by the national Life Events Team, including links to posters, prayers and logos here.
