The Dean’s Weekly Message – 1 May 2022 Posted on Saturday 30 April 2022

Cathedral News

Cathedral Census
After the events of the last few years, the Cathedral community continues to reflect and look for ways in which we can move forward together.

As you will know, the importance of having up to date information for all in our regular community – parishioners and those who regularly worship here – has never been more important.

From next weekend, and for the next four weekends, all community members will be asked to fill in an online census form.   This census should only take 2 – 5 minutes to complete.

Help from volunteers and clergy will be available for those who may struggle to fill in the form online.

All data will be managed according to Archdiocesan GDPR guidelines, a link to which is included in the questionnaire.

The Golden Book of Remembrance
For the past 50 years generous donors have been giving to the cost of the Cathedral, and asking for a remembrance at Mass for themselves, members of their families and their friends, by way of an inscription in the Golden Book which is situated in its own special Chapel in the Cathedral. Due to long term sickness the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King is looking for a volunteer to help out with enquires and to process inscriptions in the Golden Book Office for approx. 1-2 days a week. If you enjoy dealing with members of the public, are organised, with a good sense of attention to detail, and have a few hours a week that you could put to good use this may be the volunteer role for you. If you are interested in learning more please contact Claire Hanlon, Executive Assistant to the Dean on 0151 7099222 extension 201 or email

St Vincent de Paul Society
