Tree of Loss:Tree of Hope

Remembering the loss of loved ones, special occasions and everyday freedom.

As we journey through a season of bereavement to new hope this Lent, we invite you to be part of our Tree of Loss:Tree of Hope. Each hand printed leaf added to the tree recognises a loved one, special occasion or event that has been lost, particularly within the last 12 months.

Buy a leaf and leave a message of memorial to be written on your leaf. Leaves will be placed on the bare trees in the Cathedral – watch our Hope grow over the course of Lent as we remember all that has been lost in 2020 (and beyond). After Easter the leaves will be posted back to you inside a bespoke Sarah Kirby print card.

The leaves, created by local artist and Cathedral friend, Sarah Kirby, will be available to purchase online (via Eventbrite here) from Wednesday 17 February through to Saturday 3 April 2021.
