St Thérèse: the national website

Some weeks ago we announced that the relics of St Thérèse of Lisieux will be visiting England next year. It promises to be a great event, with many thousands of people taking part. Her relics will be at Lancaster Cathedral over the period 28th-30th September; it will be a chance for the entire Diocese of Lancaster to take part in this national event: parishes, schools, religious communities, youth, sick and elderly... it is hoped that every group from every part of the Diocese will be represented.

Today the Bishops' Conference of England and Wales, which is organising the visit, launches its own website about the event. It includes information about relics, about the life of St Thérèse and about how people can take part. There are also links to various other sites about Thérèse. You can find the new site here, and the Cathedral's own web pages on the event here.
