Last Friday the Cathedral lost one of its best-known and best-loved parishioners. Gertie Sowerby, who spent her life in service of this parish and its school, died aged 92. It would be hard to list the contributions she made to life at the Cathedral. She taught in the Cathedral School for many years, did much work in the parish, and remained a member of the choir right to the end. She will be sorely missed by many. Gertie's body will be brought into the Cathedral on Monday 4th August at 8pm, and her requiem Mass will take place on Tuesday 5th at 12:15pm. May she rest in peace.
