Time:
17:15 - 18:15


Description:Choral Evensong is held in the Quire of Wells Cathedral and is sung by the Wells Cathedral Choir during term time. This is open to the public and all are welcome. The Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary falls on Wednesday 15th August, and there will be a Festal Eucharist at 5:15pm in the Quire. On this day Christians throughout the world thank God for Mary the mother of Christ – for her bearing of him and her care for him as a child; for her early influence on him; for her faithful following of him even to the Cross; and then for her place of honour in the earliest church. Mary has been described as Christ’s first and most loyal disciple. So we give thanks in union with the universal church.
