Leicester Cathedral are privileged to be working with Leicestershire Police to host a Service of Hope and Remembrance in Hate Crime Awareness Week because we are serious about promoting dignity and justice for all. We are one of a number of church communities across the city and county who find themselves offering safety and sanctuary to many anxious and isolated individuals and groups who find themselves being excluded.
The service is open to every community and will offer moments of inspiration, challenge and remembrance.
Reverend Canon Karen Rooms, the Canon Missioner, says, ‘It is important to remember the deep human costs of hate crime and the simple but courageous things we can do and say which make a real difference. I hope this service will go beyond an act of solidarity and provoke some change in us all.’
