Merseyside communities to come together online this Father’s Day

Merseyside communities will be able to come together online to mark Father’s Day on Sunday 20 June with a special series of readings.

Led by the Merseyside Bereavement Team, each local authority will share readings on their social media feeds that will give to support those who have lost their fathers, or fathers who have lost children, to come together in a moment of reflection.

The online readings are an alternative to visiting cemeteries and gardens of remembrance on Sunday which are still subject to social distancing guidelines.

Virtual readings will take place at the following times:

•          11.30am – St Helens Borough Council

•          12.30pm – Liverpool City Council 

•          1.30pm – Wirral Borough Council

•          2.30pm – Sefton Cemetery and Crematorium

•          3.50pm – Merseyside Father’s Day Finale

Liverpool City Council’s Bereavement Services manager, Alan Sheldon, said: 

“To support families we are offering the opportunity for everyone to come together with a special series of online readings to both celebrate and remember mothers who have passed.

“We offered similar readings for Mother’s Day in March and we know that they were appreciated by people across the region so it is an honour to be able to do this for Father’s Day.”

Liverpool’s reading will be led by The Reverend Juliet Stephenson, after which a new memorial plaque dedicated to lost fathers will be blessed.
