This banner hangs at the back of the Cathedral along with the Bishop's coat of arms and an image of St Cuthbert. Today is the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, principal patron of the Diocese of Lancaster. The feast is celebrated in the Cathedral with a sung Mass at 12:15pm; this evening the Bishop will lead the Rosary (with Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament) at 7pm, then preside at sung Vespers at 7:30pm. Vespers will end with a short candlelit procession in the Cathedral. It's our diocesan feast, and all are most welcome to come along.
