Feast of the Dedication: Vespers

A few photographs of Vespers for the feast of the Dedication, which took place in the Cathedral this afternoon. The Liturgy was much the same as each Sunday, but with an added solemnity for this important feast. Three members of the Cathedral chapter were able to come, the choristers sang and Fr Wilson gave a short sermon.

Vespers at the Cathedral is usually accompanied by Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament; psalms and canticles are sung in Christ's presence.

At the end of Vespers, Benediction is given - a suitably solemn blessing, especially on this great feast.
