Standard Dedication

On Sunday a new standard was dedicated for the Royal British Legion National Cyclists Branch.

They had come to St James’s because as part of our environmental liturgies a few years ago, we held some courtyard blessings for cyclists, with prayers, music and visiting cyclists with their bicycles.

The RBL National Cyclists Branch do an annual fund raising ride from London to Paris, and have not had a dedicated Standard before.

As their first dedication, prayers were said for all who serve in the armed forces here and overseas, prayers were said for all who suffer because of war and the service culminated with prayers for peace.
