New light installation to pierce darkness at Lichfield Cathedral

All Saints day or All Hallows Day is a day in the church commemorating all the saints known and unknown.

'Light from Light' is the latest art installation by artist Peter Walker for All Saints. It will be available for just two days and is designed to encourage people to remember and commemorate the lives of others and to reflect on how they themselves might be a light in the world today.

Walker said: "Light from Light is about recognising and remembering those who have made a difference in our lives and our world; those who have shone a light in the darkness.

"I want this artwork to invite people to reflect on that and to think about how they too might be a light in the darkness for their own generation," he said.

Three beams of blue light representing the Holy Trinity will be projected up into the sky for two nights from dusk on 31st October and again on 1st November.

Inside the Cathedral, a light trail will trace a path to prayer stations where people can light a candle and leave their own light in the darkness.

There will be a midnight Eucharist for All Saints Day starting at 11.30pm on 31st October and on 1st November there will be a 'Light from Light' service for young people at 10.00pm.
