Light a Candle

On the first Saturday of each month Wakefield Peace Witness meets on the steps of Wakefield Cathedral between 10.45am and 11.15am.

From 11am till 11.05am people stand in silent contemplation. 

With the pandemic restrictions the Peace Witness has been suspended.

However, in the spirit of unity, solidarity and peace it has been suggested that on each Sunday evening at 7pm people place a lighted candle in their front garden, on their front wall or in a front window. If possible, and abiding by social distancing, people could stand in their gardens in a show of unity and peace for 5 minutes. 

To share a moment in the week may help us all value our neighbours and friends and appreciate that we are all facing this pandemic together. 

To quote a famous saying –  

 ‘it is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness’
