Fabric Works on the Cathedral
Just to bring you up to date on Cathedral maintenance: the work on the floor at the back of the Cathedral which was due to be done this week had to stop immediately because dry rot was discovered. This is a major problem and requires immediate attention (especially since it is so close to the organ!). Work is now well underway on the renewal of the CCTV. This work will continue for a number of weeks and will cost £11,000. Meanwhile, long overdue work on the rhones (special cast iron half circular gutters) on the right of the Cathedral sanctuary will begin next week. The scaffolding for this went up this week and this work will cost £9,500. Expensive times for the Cathedral…
Rite of Illumination – Next Sunday at 9am
Next week we will welcome the children of P3 at the 9am Mass for the Rite of Illumination – as they continue to prepare for the Sacrament of Confession.
