WW2 Plaque

 Plaque erected 1993:

 

'IN MEMORY OF THOSE WHO DIED IN THE 2ND WORLD WAR'

 

O God of truth and justice, we hold before you those whose memory we cherish, and those whose names we will never know. 

Help us to lift our eyes above the torment of this broken world, and grant us the grace to pray for those who wish us harm.

As we honour the past, may we put our faith in your future; for you are the source of life and hope, now and forever.

Amen
