Palm Sunday Procession
Here is Bishop O'Donoghue, palm in hand, walking towards the Cathedral yesterday morning. He was at the back of a procession of over 250 people.
After the reading of the Gospel account of Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, the procession left from its starting point outside Cathedral House and made its way through the garden. A fine team of altar servers led the way...
... followed by a large crowd of people from the congregation, followed by the priests and the Bishop. Inside the Cathedral Mass for Palm Sunday was celebrated. Holy Week has begun!
is the mother church of the Catholic Diocese of Lancaster, which stretches from Preston to the Scottish border. The Cathedral acts as a focal point for the diocese, as well as being home to a vibrant parish community. It also hosts a number of concerts and cultural events throughout the year.
