Will get the inevitable apologies over with first…….To +David for suggesting he was preaching, when he wasn’t…to Dean Justin for not realising he was preaching, and therefore not publicising it..The Dean’s sermon is available in the Easter-Pentecost sub file (see below in Sermons).
Having done that… herewith the Notices:
New Canonry Established
First, many congratulations to the Revd Richard White, who has been appointed as the Cathedral’s first “Canon for Mission & Evangelism”. Richard, his wife Louise and their children have been regular members of the congregation for some time now, and their work with Dream is helping to bring people of all ages and backgrounds, many with little or no previous engagement with Christianity, to faith. Richard will be installed at a service on September 1st (more details nearer the event). Taking the Cathedral’s message of faith out into the wider community is obviously an incredibly important part of what we are tasked to do, and Richard clearly has a demanding role to fill.
Special Services For This Month
Next Sunday, being Trinity Sunday (June 7th) the 10:30 Eucharist will include the Ordination of Priests, with The Bishop of Liverpool preaching.
The following Tuesday, June 9th; Evensong (5:30) will include a licensing service for Clergy. Will try and establish which Parishes are involved in this.
Monday June 15th will see Val Jackson and Arthur Cooper installed as Lay Canons of the Cathedral together with the Renewal of Commitment for those Lay Canons who are continuing in Office. This will also take place as part of the Service of Choral Evensong.
The Cathedral Choir will be joined by the Choir of St Peter’s College, Oxford for the choral services on June 25th, 26th and 28th of June. There will also be a charity concert on the evening of June 27th (see separate notice).
Servant Group Pray For Liverpool
Friday June 5th at 7:30 in the Lady Chapel. The Servant Group is an inter denominational group who regularly meet to pray for Liverpool and its people. If you’d like to add your prayers just turn up on the day, all welcome.
Getting To know Our Neighbour
Following the very successful and interesting visit to the Princes Road Synagogue, which was attended by over seventy people, the Inter-Faith group continues to mark its silver jubilee with a series of visits to the sacred spaces of other faiths. On Wednesday, June 17th at 7:30 there will be an organised visit to the Sikh Gurdwara in Wellington Avenue (opposite Asda in Smithdown Road). The visit will be hosted by Hardev Singh Sohal, who will offer an introduction and explanation of the Sikh faith, it’s scriptures and customs. Refreshments will be provided before moving to the upstairs Temple area (head covering required) Anyone interested should contact Canon Michael Wolfe, or sign the sheet available after Sunday services. Anyone who worships during the week can give me their details and I will ensure these are passed on to Canon Michael.
