A Commemoration of Canon Ernest Winter


Saturday 14th January 2017 marks 100 years since the death of Canon Ernest Winter, Rector of Elland, founding inspiration of All Saints Church, and a figure who contributed much to the welfare of this community during his 24 years as their parish Priest. Canon Winter was a nationally renowned figure, and even with the Great War raging in the early days of 1917, his death made national headlines. A Requiem Mass will be offered for him at 9.30am at the High Altar in All Saints on Saturday 14th, which will be followed by Prayers at his Grave in Elland (Exley) Cemetery at 11am. The following day, Sunday 15th January, we will remember him at a special commemorative Evensong in St Mary’s at 6pm.
