The arrival of September heralds the return of a busier diary! The schools will be back in action this week, and as people return from holidays the workload again begins to pick up. In September there are a few extra events at the Cathedral: extra tours and talks are put on for the nation Heritage Open Days (11th-14th), and for local heritage days ('Lancaster Unlocked, 19th-21st). Important feasts include the Birth of Our Lady (8th), local martyr St Ambrose Barlow (10th) and the Triumph of the Cross (Sunday 14th). The Cathedral is also hosting the annual Diocesan Education Mass, which takes place on 26th of this month. To view a more complete diary for the month, click here.
