Remembering the visit

The plinth which supports the statue of St Thérèse in the cloister garden is inscribed with the dates of the visit. This lasting memorial is a physical reminder, but the visit will also live on for many years in the memories of those who were able to come.

Many people also left messages in a book at the back of the Cathedral, recording their thoughts and their prayers. The story of the visit continues to unfold even now, as people tell of what happened to them and the lasting effects of this time of grace.
