Join in the Cathedral Rededication celebrations this weekend
There will be a twelve hour prayer vigil on Saturday 7 December from 9am to 9pm.
The Dean would like to encourage people to join in the vigil which will be held in the Lady Chapel.
The official opening and rededication of the Cathedral is on 8 December at 10.30am.
All are welcome to attend the rededication service. Refreshments will be served after the service in the Cathedral on the Street.
Festal Evensong at 5.30pm will conclude our rededication celebration. Evensong will be sung by Cathedral Voluntary Choir followed by a fabulous fireworks display from the tower, festive sherry and cake afterwards – a lovely end to a special day!
