200 days... and counting

It's exactly 200 days until the relics of St Thérèse of Lisieux arrive here at Lancaster Cathedral. Already a great deal of time and thought has gone into planning the event, and interest is beginning to build. Several coach parties are already booked in and many more will no doubt follow when publicity for the visit is released. Today Bishop Campbell will meet with Deans and representatives from each deanery to discuss the visit. It is very much hoped that every parish will be represented at the event, and that the whole Diocese may benefit. We are now getting regular enquiries about the programme for the visit; a few more days of patience are required, then all will be revealed! We will publish the programme on the Cathedral website and on a new blog being launched for the visit; the publication date is March 28th - exactly six months before the relics come to us. In meantime, if you need more information or wish to book a group visit to the relics, please contact us.
