The Dean’s Weekly Message – 15th May 2022 Posted on Saturday 14 May 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 this weekend, and for the next four weekends, all visitors attending Mass will be asked to fill in a census form after the service.  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.  All data will be managed according to Archdiocesan GDPR guidelines, a link to which is included in the questionnaire.

Mass Transfer
Due to the Organ Restoration Project and the scaffold due to go up around the Blessed Sacrament Chapel once again, we are having to transfer our daily Masses to a different location than usual.

Our usual weekday timetable has now resumed.

For next week please note:-
Monday 16 May 2022 – Friday 20 May
8am Mass will in the Crypt Chapel
12.15pm Mass will be in the Crypt Chapel
5.00pm Mass will be in the Lady Chapel

The Paradox of Abundance
Over 800 million people go hungry each day. Yet the world produces over 4 billion tonnes of food and we only need 3.7 billion tonnes to feed everyone. From all this food produced, a third is wasted. St John Paul II called this ‘the paradox of abundance.’ Clearly the current global food system is not working. But as Pope Francis said, “Each of us has a role to play in transforming food systems for the benefit of people and the planet.” Let’s respond to his call! CAFOD’s new campaign is called Fix the Food System. See for more information, including an invitation for parish groups to learn about the impact of our food with our Fix the Food System: a 7-station journey resource.

Vocations Weekend for Young Women
Theme: Discernment and Vocation
Dates: 27-29 May 2022
Location: Liverpool

The weekend is organised by the sisters, Faithful Companions of Jesus (FCJ).

There is nothing quite like religious life – it’s an extraordinary adventure into a deep relationship with God.

If you are wondering if God is calling you to religious life and would like to find out more why not come along?  You are welcome to stay for the weekend or just come along on Saturday for the day. There will be opportunity for prayer, reflection and input, chance to ask questions and to meet others who are also wondering where God is calling them.
