Heavenly Angels bring Hope to those bereaved through Coronavirus

by Donna Birrell

A church in Wales is holding a Festival of Angels to commemorate those who have lost their lives to Coronavirus.

The congregation at St Giles parish church in Wrexham has created over 6,000 angels inspired by the church’s 15th Century musical angels which are carved into its roof.

The handcrafted angels have been made from a variety of new and recycled materials and will be suspended from the church tower and in the nave. 

The vicar of St Giles, Revd Dr Jason Bray told :

“For many Christians, angels represent hope and light, so as we emerge from the darkest days of the pandemic, we feel that this message of Christian hope is one we want to share with the world around us and the Festival of Angels is a wonderful way of doing that.”

The festival begins on Sunday 31 October with a Eucharist for All Saints at 11am, and a Commemoration of All Souls at 6pm where the names of deceased loved ones will be remembered. The event continues until the New Year.
