Honouring Service

Today Her Majesty The Queen visited Sheffield Cathedral to honour 89 men and 89 women for their service to their community and church.

In an atmosphere of solemnity and celebration, Her Majesty distributed the specially minted Maundy money to each recipient - a man and a women for each year of her life.

This tradition recognises individuals who have worked to make a positive contribution to the community. I have been moved to learn of the many unsung heroes in South Yorkshire and we are deeply honoured to host the Royal Maundy Service on behalf of our nation.
— The Dean of Sheffield, the Very Reverend Peter Bradley
