The Service will take place in the Garden of Remembrance at the Cenotaph at City Hall on Sunday 13th November. Michelle is due to lay a wreath on behalf of the citizens of Belfast in commemoration of the sacrifices made by members of the armed forces and civilians during the First and Second World Wars, as well as subsequent conflicts.
Speaking ahead of the Service, Michelle said: “As Deputy Lord Mayor I’m honoured to be a part of this great tradition of commemorating those who have fallen whilst making the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we cherish.
“Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday are a time to acknowledge the courage of all those who fought and died on battlefields around the world in the face of tyranny and in the name of democracy. We must never forget these noble acts of service, as it’s so important to look back and learn from the events of the past in order to move forward into the future.
“Personally, I’m very proud to be playing my part leading the Remembrance Sunday Service dedicated to the memory of these brave individuals, at a time of year that so many hold dear to their hearts.
“Everyone is more than welcome and encouraged to attend the Service, which is due to run from approximately 10:30am through to 12 noon on Sunday (13th).”
