Those members of the general public and the media who are unable to attend tomorrow morning’s “America’s Service of Remembrance” at Westminster College in Fulton, MO can live stream the event.
America’s Service of Remembrance, the only American commemoration on the date of the 50thanniversary of the death of Sir Winston Churchill, will be held at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, January 24, in the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury on the Westminster campus.
The live stream link is:
British Ambassador Sir Peter Westmacott KCMG; Edwina Sandys, Churchill’s granddaughter; Churchill’s great grandson Duncan Sandys; and Missouri Governor Jay Nixon will all honor world statesman Sir Winston Churchill as participants in the service.
The order of the service is drawn from Churchill’s funeral service originally held at St. Paul’s Cathedral.
Stephen Bridges, British Consul General in Chicago, and the Right Honorable Lord Watson of Richmond, Chairman of CTN Communications and Chairman of Havas Media UK; will also be in attendance.
America’s Service of Remembrance is one of the first in a series of events around the world entitled Churchill 2015 to commemorate the life, work and achievements of Churchill on the 50thanniversary of his death and to celebrate and advance his living legacy. A host of educational and cultural Churchill-related activity will be planned throughout the year as a part of this unique celebration.
