SHIPPING FESTIVAL SERVICE WINCHESTER CATHEDRAL

THURSDAY 14th JUNE 2018

Every year in June, a Shipping Festival Service is held in Winchester Cathedral, by
permission of the Dean and Chapter of Winchester, as a tribute to those who have served, and those who continue to serve, in the UK’s vital shipping industry.

The Cachalots (The Southampton Master Mariners’ Club) have organised this service each year since 1930, apart from a break during the Second World War.

Everybody is welcome. You don’t have to be connected to seafaring or shipping to
attend the Service which this year will take place in Winchester Cathedral at 1930 on
Thursday 14th June. (7.15 pm for 7.30 pm)

This year the service will again be attended by the Lord- Lieutenant of Hampshire, the Mayors of Winchester and Southampton and other dignitaries.

The preacher will be
The Very Rev'd Catherine Ogle Dean of Winchester Cathedral
The Southampton Albion Band will take part in the Service.

Proceeds from the collection taken during the service will be divided equally between Southampton Seafarers Charities and Winchester Cathedral.

After the Service members of the Congregation are then invited to walk to the Deanery Garden where refreshments will be available.

Everyone is welcome to attend this historic service
