City of Windsor Commemoration Program Honouring Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
Monday, September 19, 8:00 am to 6:00 pm
The City of Windsor has released details of its full commemoration program to honour Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Canada will mark the death with a national day of mourning on September 19, 2022.
Public Viewing of The Queen’s Funeral
The Queen’s funeral will take place on Monday, September 19, 2022. The funeral will be held at Westminster Abbey, the historic church where Britain’s kings and queens are crowned. The service will be broadcast on BBC television and will be available to stream on BBC iPlayer, with updates on the BBC news and radio networks throughout the day.
The City, in partnership with Element Entertainment / NXT Level, will host an outdoor public screening of the funeral at City Hall Square, beginning at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) on Monday, September 19, 2022. Residents attending are asked to bring their own lawn chair. The lobby of City Hall will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. that day to allow residents to attend and sign the book of condolences on site.
Public Memorial Service at All Saints’ Anglican Church
The City will co-host a public memorial service for The Queen with All Saints’ Anglican Church on Monday, September 19, 2022, at 6:00 p.m. It has been customary for All Saints’ to host such a gathering at the passing of monarchs and in conjunction with the City. This tradition will continue with a ceremony to include a procession into the church led by the Essex and Kent Scottish Regiment, Evening Prayers led by Reverend Robert Clifford, music from Windsor Classic Chorale with Organist David Carle and Soloist Jennifer Swanson, and remarks from dignitaries. To accommodate expected congregation size, audio and video from inside the church will be broadcast outside at City Hall Square, courtesy of Element Entertainment / NXT Level. Commemorative keepsake cards will be available to attendees while supplies last.
Book of Condolences
This week, the City invited Windsor residents and visitors to begin signing a book of condolences to honour The Queen. The book is set up in the lobby of City Hall (350 City Hall Square West), flanked by the Windsor Police Service Honour Guard, where it will remain until end of day on Monday, September 19, 2022. When the official mourning period ends later this month, the signed pages will be bound and sent to the Governor General. A copy will be digitized and available online in the near future.
