A surge of interest

Anyone who has been in Cathedral House recently knows that the phones and the email inbox have been significantly busier than usual, with many enquiries being made about Monday's episcopal ordination. The Cathedral's website tells a similar story: above is a graph showing usage of the site on each day in February. On 12th - the day that Fr Campbell's appointment was announced - there was a huge surge in visits to the site, as people looked for information and pictures about the bishop-elect. There is also a smaller surge on Friday 15th - perhaps from priests looking for information before the weekend newsletters were printed!

February as a whole showed a fairly big increase in the number of people using the site. By the end of the month the March figures may have caught up! It is encouraging to see a steady climb in visits over the last year.

The Cathedral's main website contains much information about the building, the parish, the visits programmes and ways to get involved. There is also some essential information about the ordination on the front page. If you'd like to take a look, click here.
