St Michael’s Day Service and Lunch (With Sheep Herding to Follow!)
The Service of veneration to the Patron Saint of the Company, St Michael the Archangel, will be held this year at 11am on Sunday 29th September 2019 at St Magnus-the-Martyr Church, Lower Thames Street, EC3R 6DN. As ever, there will be fine music and the preacher will be the Right Reverend Tim Thornton, Bishop at Lambeth and Bishop of the Falkland Islands. The Master hopes that as many Liverymen as possible will wish to join her with Nicholas and bring their families. Following the Service our Company Chaplain Cardinal Rector the Reverend Father Philip Warner has invited us all to join him and the congregation for a light buffet lunch with wine in the crypt. The cost of the reception with wine will be £25.00 per head.
