New Builders for a New Challenge
Absolutely key to its construction (from consecration in 1924 to completion in 1978) was the foundation in 1925 of ‘The Builders of Liverpool Cathedral’ (later ‘The Friends and Builders’ and finally ‘The Friends’.) The purpose of the organisation was to help to build the largest Cathedral in the country. On its successful completion ‘the Friends’ did not disband but took on a new role, that is, to help maintain and add to the building and its worship.
To help commemorate the work and generosity of the original Friends and Builders we are looking to a new generation to take up the baton: the Liverpool Cathedral Centenary Builders.
