Nobody can fail to be moved and deeply saddened by the distressing scenes emerging from Turkey and Syria following the earthquakes.  The number who are now thought to have died and the scale of the damage is hard to comprehend. Here at St Albans Cathedral we stand alongside those affected. The Cathedral is open every day for any who want to light a candle and pray and we will be having special collections for the DEC appeal at all our services on Sunday 19 and 26 February or donate online.
