Light Up The Dawn on ANZAC Day

How to Light Up the Dawn this ANZAC Day

There’s no doubt that ANZAC Day 2020 will be different to how we traditionally commemorate. While we cannot gather at services and marches, we can be together in spirit.

By standing at the end of your driveway, in your living room, or on your balcony at 6am on ANZAC Day, we can be united in the ANZAC spirit to remember all those who served and sacrificed.

 

How to Hold Your ANZAC Day Service at Home

Our friends and colleagues at RSL Queensland have provided a digital recording of the Dawn Service.

At 6am on ANZAC Day, you can visit the rslanzacspirit.com.au web page and play the service.

The ABC will also be broadcasting a Dawn Service at 5:30am You will be able to live stream this service via the RSL NSW Facebook page.

The most important thing is that we acknowledge ANZAC Day, and stand, pause and remember all those who served and sacrificed. Some people may choose to hold candles, or lay wreaths on their driveways. For others, it may be a few minutes of contemplative silence.

 

Order of Service for 10am Service

Later in the day, we will also be live streaming a 10am closed service from Sydney. Like RSL NSW on Facebook to ensure you catch it.
