Katharine of Aragon Commemoration Services – Peterborough 2010

News, Peterborough No Comments »

Date: Friday, January 29, 2010 – 8:30am – 10:00pm

Katharine of Aragon was buried in the Cathedral on 29th January 1536 in what was then the site of the Abbey.  In 1986 Peterborough was twinned with Alcalá de Henares, the birthplace of Katharine of Aragon.  Each year since then we have held an ecumenical Commemoration Service in the Cathedral.  This year the service will take place at 11.30 am and will include contributions from the renowned Shakespearian actress, Jane Lapotaire, as well as readings and prayers in Spanish, and Tudor music and dance performed by local schoolchildren.  It is both a lively and colourful occasion, no tickets are required and all are welcome to join us.

Last year we welcomed around 900 people to the Commemoration Service and due to the growing ecumenical and public interest in this occasion we are working in partnership with Peterborough City Council to deliver an extended schedule of activity this January.  This will include a Roman Catholic Mass and prayers for Katharine at 8.30 am on the High Altar, beside her grave.   At 1.45 pm the renowned historian, broadcaster and writer, Alison Weir, will be signing her books at the local Waterstones bookstore in Peterborough Town Centre (Bridge Street).  There will also be a Candlelight Procession at dusk (5pm) during which all present are welcome to pay their respects at Katharine’s resting place and are invited to place a flower, prayer, card or pomegranate on her tomb.  The procession will be immediately followed by a short service of Vespers in the Cathedral, which will be sung by Peterborough Cathedral Choir.
