The Ticket Office

The date 1st May looms large for the Cathedral; on this day Bishop O'Donoghue will retire and Bishop Campbell will be formally inaugurated as the sixth Bishop of Lancaster. Invitations have been going out over the last week or so. Today our volunteers are in preparing the tickets for the Mass; due to space restrictions we will not be able to admit anyone without a ticket.

Not only do the tickets have to be cut; each is also stamped with the Cathedral parish seal, to ensure that any ticket which turns up on the day is, in fact, the genuine article! A small number of tickets is available to each parish; parishioners wishing to attend the Mass should speak to their parish priest.
