This great Cathedral was built to the glory of God and to be a place of worship for everyone in the Diocese of Liverpool.
Over the last 100 years the Dean and Chapter have worked to ensure that the vision of the Cathedral’s founders has not been lost. As we move forward into the Cathedral’s second century we want to ensure that its role takes into account the needs of all of the parishes and congregations it serves.
In order to achieve this goal we need better two-way communication between parishes and the Cathedral, and an increased understanding of what each can offer the other, so that through an enriched partnership we may better serve God as together we proclaim his love.
This task is not always helped by the fact that the Cathedral is geographically on the edge of the Diocese and some parishes may well feel remote. We are therefore endeavouring to appoint a Cathedral-Parish Representative in every parish.
We are looking to build a two-way bridge between each parish and the Cathedral. We have chosen the word 'bridge' and phrase 'two-way' very carefully for the bridges will link us together and ideas and prayers will flow between us all in both directions.
We already have more than 180 Representatives, covering 173 parishes in the Diocese, in place, but we are constantly looking to all of the remaining Parishes to appoint a Cathedral-Parish Representative as quickly as they possibly can.
