Loving God,
Welcome into your arms the victims of violence and terrorism.

Manchester Cathedral Clergy embark on Easter ‘sole’ searching with shoe shining initiative at Manchester Arndale and The Printworks

Manchester Cathedral Clergy embark on Easter ‘sole’ searching with shoe shining initiative at Manchester Arndale and The Printworks

On Maundy Thursday (24 March), Manchester Cathedral clergy will continue the tradition of shining the shoes of the people of Manchester.

This quirky idea has a serious message aiming to emulate Jesus washing the feet of his followers 2000 years ago and the subsequent tradition of the clergy washing the feet of parishioners on the Thursday before Easter for centuries. The shoe-shine event is a modern twist on this tradition, and it is the seventh year that the event has taken place.
