Listen very carefully..I shall say this only once…
Officially the Preacher at Choral Evensong for Passion Sunday was Revd Canon Cynthia Downdle, Canon Chancellor of Liverpool Cathedral; until she realised she was double booked and swapped with Revd Canon Anthony Hawley, Canon Treasurer of Liverpool Cathedral. This was the situation as it was known on Friday March 27th. Then….at some point between Friday and Saturday afternoon, a transmogrification took place in which Canon Downdle became Canon Hawley, who became The Dean.
Are we keeping up at the back there? So to the best of my knowledge and belief the situation for tomorrow is as follows:
Eucharist President Rev Canon Cynthia Downdle, Canon Chancellor of Liverpool Cathedral.
Preacher Rev Canon John Roberts
Choral Evensong Preacher The Very Revd Justin Welby, Dean of Liverpool
All this AND remembering to re-set your clocks AND avoiding the Liverpool half Marathon.…it’s a lot to ask of a congregation.
