MERCHANT NAVY DAY – LIVERPOOL: Sunday September 1st 2019.

IOBA at MN Day Sept 4th 2016 (1)Merchant Navy Memorial Day in Liverpool: 1st September 2019.

The Merchant Navy Day Committee is pleased to invite you to this year’s ceremony in the Liverpool Parish Church of Our Lady and Saint Nicholas, Chapel Street, Liverpool.

Once again the IOBA Standard will be paraded.

Afterwards we walk down to the M.N. Memorial on the Pier Head,  led by a Sea Cadet Band, for a short Service and laying of wreaths.

The IOBA wreath will be laid along with many others, Merchant Navy veterans, High Commissioners and Naval Attaches from many countries linked with the Port of Liverpool, including Canada, plus the Lord Mayor of Liverpool and Mayors of the Merseyside Boroughs.

The Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Peter Brennan would like to invite you to attend the Merchant Navy Day Service at ‘Our Lady and St.Nicholas Liverpool Parish Church’ on Sunday 1st September 2019.  At this service we celebrate the role of the Merchant Navy in the City of Liverpool in the past and in the present: there is more information below.

You are kindly requested to arrive at 11.30am for the service at 12 noon.  After the service the congregation will proceed to the Merchant Navy Memorial at the Pier Head. Please note this is an outdoor event. Carriages after the Act of Remembrance at approximately 1pm.

The dress code is Lounge Suit/Day Dress/Uniform/Medals

Since the year 2000 the 3rd September, or a date close to it, has been designated ‘Merchant Navy Day’.  The purpose is to celebrate and raise awareness of our dependence on our past, present and future Merchant Navy seafarers.   

The river has always been at the centre of the economy of the Liverpool region, and the Merchant Navy is part of the past and the future of the area.  Every year hundreds of people gather at Liverpool Parish Church – the Sailors’ Church – to celebrate Merchant Navy Day, followed by an Act of Remembrance at the Merchant Navy Memorial at the Pier Head.  The congregation is led by the Lord Lieutenant of Merseyside and the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, but it is important that the congregation reflects not just civic dignitaries and current/retired seafarers, but also representatives from shipping companies and others who represent the work of the Merchant Navy today.

This year the Service will take place on Sunday 1 September at 12 noon.  We are particularly encouraging those connected with shipping and the Merchant Navy in the 21st Century to get involved so that we can reflect today’s maritime community in the service.

Please come and support our seafarers by participating in the Service in September.
