As the season of Advent starts, a new Church year also begins. For the Cathedral it is our 150th, and will be marked by an array of events. The parish newsletter has a revised look as the 150th year gets underway. The front page is pictures above; the full version of the newsletter, updated weekly, can be seen in pdf format here.
The Cathedral's website has also been updated, with a new-look front page and a revised 150th section. Blog readers (at least those who dislike change!) will be pleased to find that the format remains unaltered, aside from the 150th logo appearing on the right hand side beneath the 'blog archive'. There's also some good news for Blog readers with an interest in history. Running throughout 2009 there will be an 'historical blog' featuring old pictures and reports of events at the Cathedral in bygone years. It's called 'Billington's Blog', in homage to Canon Billington, who wrote the original parish history (published 1910), and will launch in January. We'll post the new blog's address with a reminder nearer the time.
