On behalf of all the Cathedral clergy and the whole team I would like to wish you all a truly Happy and Holy Easter. It has been a great Lent – with consistently high turn outs for Stations of the Cross and Confessions and so I would also like to thank you for participating so well and so wholeheartedly throughout Lent this year. I would also like to thank all those of you who have worked so hard to make all the services of the Sacred Triduum so beautiful and so memorable: the servers, the cleaners, the flower team, the passkeepers, the RCIA team and of course our wonderful choir led by Michael Ferguson and our organist John Reilly. Thank you all for all you do for the Cathedral. We wish you all a Blessed Easter.
As you know, at the Easter Vigil we received six people into the Church: Ross, Morag, Jennifer, Lesley, Jamie and Tracey – and we confirmed a further 18 adults. This is the end of a long journey of faith for them. I know that you will make them very welcome as they make this step and I ask you to keep them all in your prayers as the get used to being part of our Christian community.
The Feast of Divine Mercy – next Sunday 8th April at 3pm
The celebration of the Feast here in the Cathedral will start at 3pm on Sunday, 8th April. There will be exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and an opportunity for confession. Please come along.
Wishing you all a joyful celebration of the Resurrection! Fr Patrick, Fr Nick, Deacon Peter
