November Chapter Mass

Today the Chapter (the canons) joined the Bishop for Mass in the Cathedral. They celebrate Mass together twice a year, with the November Mass offered for the deceased bishops and priests of the diocese.

After Mass the Bishop, priests and members of the congregation processed to the Cathedral cemetery, where prayers for the dead were said.

It is fitting here to remember all those who have died, but perhaps especially those who are buried here: amongst them, all four former bishops of the Diocese. May they rest in peace.
