Ecumenical service to remember victims of Clutha helicopter crash

March 18, 2014

A memorial service for the Clutha bar victims will take place at St Andrew’s Cathedral in Glasgow on Saturday 29 March – four months after the tragedy which claimed ten lives.

The cathedral stands less than 200 yards from the spot where a police helicopter fell from the sky on to the crowded bar on the night of 29 November.

In the days following the tragic incident, thecathedral provided a space where people came together in prayer for the victims and all involved in the rescue and recovery effort. The funeral mass for police constable Kirsty Nellis also took place there.

Archbishop Philip Tartaglia will be joined by members of other Christian churches and faith traditions at the memorial service, along with relatives of the victims, survivors and representatives of the emergency services who worked tirelessly following the tragedy.

Civic leaders from national and local government will also take part.
