High Sheriff’s Justice Service to thank those who uphold the law and administer justice

On Sunday (7 March 2021) Leicester Cathedral will be pleased to host the High Sheriff’s Justice Service, which, due to current restrictions, will be pre-recorded and released on YouTube.

 This year’s service has been organised by Alison Smith MBE DL, High Sheriff of Leicestershire, with the purpose of giving thanks for our system of law and order and acknowledging with gratitude the contributions of all who work to uphold the law and administer justice in Leicestershire. 

The service will include readings from Chief Constable Simon Cole QPM and His Honour Judge Timothy Spencer QC. The Rt Revd Martyn Snow, Bishop of Leicester, will give the sermon and prayers will be led by The Revd Mary Gregory, Chaplain to the High Sheriff and The Very Revd David Monteith, Dean of Leicester. Although the service cannot take place live in the Cathedral, music from the Cathedral Chamber Choir and the Cathedral organ will be included. 

Dean David said: “We very much hope that at this difficult time of continued separation, many people will be able to join us across the distance for this service which will be available to watch from 3pm on 7 March 2021. The Order of Service as well as a link to the YouTube service will be posted on the Cathedral website on this page: www.leicestercathedral.org/online-services.”
