Ascension Day at Southwark, the City and Soho

Thursday 2 June is Ascension Day in the Anglican calendar.

There will be tower top singing at Southwark Cathedral at 7.30am and at St Michael’s Cornhill in the City after the 1.10pm Choral Eucharist.

All Hallows-by-the-Tower has traditional beating the bounds of the parish at 3pm. The boundary includes the River Thames so some people will have to take to a boat.

This is one of the years when the Tower of London beats its Liberty so there will be the triennial ‘confrontation’ of the All Hallows congregation and the Beefeaters at 7pm.

The Roman Catholic Church in England is keeping the Ascension next Sunday but the traditional day is being marked at the reopened St Patrick’s in Soho Square at 6pm on Thursday.
