The University will be closed for Remembrance Day.
On Friday, Nov. 11, King’s honours Remembrance Day with a service of Choral Evensong in the Chapel. A simple remembrance in prayer and song, led by the Chaplain and Chapel Choir. Members of the local Halifax Rifles regiment read the names of Kingsmen killed in action in WWI and WWII, as well as the Halifax Rifles Fallen in WWII and Canadians killed in action in Afghanistan. The Last Post is played and the Chapel Choir sings John Tavener’s Funeral Ikos. The service begins at 5PM in the King’s Chapel.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
