From 18th June, we’re welcoming you back to Liverpool Cathedral for private individual prayer in our Lady Chapel. You’ll be able to book a time to come and pray privately between 11 am to 3 pm.
We’ve all been affected by the pandemic in some way; feeling isolated or not being to be with loved ones face-to-face. But for some of you; the impact has been stark - the illness or loss of someone close to you. However you have been affected, we’ll try to have a member of clergy on hand to help you during our opening hours.
Out of hours, you can continue to ask for prayer via our Prayer for Liverpool website:www.prayerforliverpool.org/requests which has been set up especially if you feel the need for prayer for yourself or others when you can’t get to pray in person.
Changes to visiting Liverpool Cathedral for private prayer
You will notice a number of changes we have made to our operations to keep you, our staff and volunteers safe. We have done this in line with current advice around hygiene and social distancing.
Book your place
You’ll need to book a place on our Eventbrite page. This helps us to work out the number of people who will be visiting us so we can make sure we maintain the appropriate level of social distancing and keep the correct number of people in the building.
Slots will be every 30 minutes for a fixed number of people. Book your place by clicking this link.
If you don’t book a slot through Eventbrite, you may need to wait until we’ve made sure we’ve got the capacity in the Lady Chapel for you to come in.
We will have staff and volunteers on hand to help and answer questions. Please make sure you keep physically apart from them and other visitors (currently 2m).
Sanitise your hands
At the Lady Chapel entrance, we’ll provide hand sanitiser. Please make sure you sanitise your hands on your way in.
Let us know if you need our help
Use the Eventbrite booking form to let us know if you have mobility issues and need us to make alternative arrangements to make your visit as comfortable as possible.
Light a candle
You will be able to light a candle in the Lady Chapel. You will find two candle pricket stands in the Lady Chapel.
No toilet facilities
We are not able to provide toilet facilities at the Cathedral at the moment.
Donate when you book
Like many other organisations in the city and beyond, we face an uncertain future. Liverpool Cathedral has lost nearly all of its income over recent months, so your donations are especially needed and welcome. You can also donate on our portable contactless consoles. Please give as generously as you can.
This is a particularly difficult time for many in our city, our nation and the wider world and we want to continue to be a place of solace to everyone who visits us. We apologise for these changes; we recognise that they may be inconvenient or uncomfortable. We hope you understand why we need to make them and look forward to when we can welcome you back to the bustling, vibrant place of Encounter which you love.
