The Dedication of the Cathedral

Today we celebrate the annual feast of the Dedication of the Cathedral, led by our two bishops. The consecration candles around the Cathedral, which mark the places where the walls were anointed with the oil of chrism on 4th October 1859, are lit, ready for Mass. The feast is also celebrated with a parish lunch and with Vespers at 4:40pm. More on today's celebrations to follow over the coming days.
