NOVUS ATTEND THE FESTIVAL OF ANGELS TO REMEMBER LIVES LOST THROUGH COVID

On Tuesday 12th November, Novus Customer Liaison Officers, Jacquelyn and Carolyn visited the St. Giles Parish Church in Wrexham North Wales, where the ‘Festival of Angels’ is being held.

The purpose of the festival is to remember and celebrate the lives lost in Wales due to the devastating Covid-19 pandemic.

Our Customer Liaison Officers had the pleasure of meeting Rev Jason Bray and his Administrator Ann Owen and learnt more about the festival and the beautiful church.

Carolyn commented:

“We were amazed to find out that St Giles Parish Church has been a place of worship since 15th Century (in its present form), however there is evidence of a place of worship on this site dating back to the 11th Century.”

The ceiling of the church was adorned by musical angels and 6000 handmade miniature angel figures were displayed all around, each one representing a life lost in Wales (Angels in the Christian tradition being bringers of hope and light). These angels were made from recycled items such as fine netting, while others were delicately sewn or knitted from reclaimed wool. Children have also added to the collection creating them out of paper plates and glitter.

The Church is hoping to raise much needed funds from the festival and we are pleased to have donated £100.

Jacquelyn commented:

“The photos, although breath taking do not do justice to the beauty and splendour of the display and anyone who is able to visit would not be disappointed.”
