Ascension Day from the Cathedral Tower

Thursday 21 May is Ascension Day, the day in the church calendar when we remember Jesus’ ascension to heaven, following his rising from the dead at Easter.


Traditionally church services are held on high – and this is what will happen at St Edmundsbury Cathedral at 8.00 am on 21 May.

A short service of prayers and readings will be livestreamed by the Dean of St Edmundsbury, the Very Reverend Joe Hawes, from the top of the Millennium Tower.
