All the news and information for the cathedral community. Liverpool Cathedral - a place of encounter
A welcome from Dean Sue
It was with sadness that we learned, on Friday April 9th, of the death of HRH Prince Philip. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Queen and the Royal Family at this difficult time. Prince Philip has given a life of dedicated service and as the Archbishop of Canterbury said on Saturday morning we have a lot to learn from his example. On a personal note I will be forever grateful for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme and the way that has formed my life over the years.
May he rest in peace and rise in Glory.
Holy Week and Easter Sunday proved to be an inspirational journey and I am so grateful to the musicians, the clergy team, the technology people and the Vergers. Holy Week and Easter are demanding in ‘normal times,’ but even more so in times of pandemic when rules and regulations keep changing. I am sure you agree we had an excellent choice of both in-person services and online services.
Thank you one and all for your imagination, patience and perseverance in preparing and leading such thoughtful services and reflections. Thanks also go to the flower arrangers who really did excel in producing such magnificent flower displays.
Staff will begin to return and we look forward to seeing them over the next few weeks.
There are some exciting opportunities to engage in science and faith over the next few weeks and to engage with the Church of England’s programme Living in Love and Faith.
I hope that are we journey through this Easter season you will see more signs of the hope that Christ’s resurrection offers us.
Christ is risen he is risen indeed Allelulia.
We are open for Private Prayer
The Cathedral is now open for Private Prayer. You are welcome to come and offer your own prayers and also to come and give thanks for the life of HRH Prince Philip.
