An Open Invitation

149 years ago today, the St Peter's was consecrated as the new parish church for Lancaster; it was raised to Cathedral status with the foundation of the Diocese of Lancaster in 1924. Each year the feast of the Dedication is marked on the Sunday nearest to the anniversary. Tomorrow the Dedication of the Cathedral is celebrated with Mass at 10:30am, a parish lunch and sung Vespers at 4:40pm. Both our Bishops will be with us all day, and Bishop Campbell will preach at both Mass and Vespers. Blog readers - like everone else - are warmly invited to take part in the day. Vespers offers a chance for those outside of the Cathedral parish to take part. If you are free tomorrow afternoon, why not come along and celebrate this annual feast with us?
