Commonwealth Day, held on the second Monday in March each year, is an opportunity for individuals, communities and organisations to promote the Commonwealth’s shared values of peace, democracy and equality, and to celebrate the association’s rich diversity. The afternoon service in London, UK, took place in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, and other members of the Royal Family, senior politicians, High Commissioners, Commonwealth dignitaries and over 1,000 young people, with approximately 2,000 people attending in Westminster Abbey.

Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy mountain!
Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble,
for the day of the LORD is coming, it is near — a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness! (Joel 2:1-2)

100 Bells will toll on November 11th
(excerpt from Canadian Legion website)
On November 11, at the going down of the sun, communities across Canada will mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War with the ringing of 100 bells. The ringing of bells emulates the moment in 1918 when church bells across Europe tolled as four years of war had come to an end…
When you hear the bells toll on November 11, take a moment to pause and remember all those who served and sacrificed.
We will remember them.
St. John’s Cathedral will toll its bells at 4:52 pm on Sunday, November 11, joining with others across the country.
