Floral tribute to mark Cathedral's half-century

By Claire Hanlon

A flower festival is to be held to celebrate the Cathedral's Golden Jubilee in 2017. This 50th anniversary event will open on Friday 2 June 2017 to coincide with the main weekend of celebrations on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 June.

We aim to have displays all around the Cathedral and in the chapels. Each living display will represent a significant liturgical celebration from birth to death and will include scenes depicting Baptism, First Communion, and the Sacrament of Marriage.

It is our hope that all those visiting the Cathedral during the festival will be offered an oasis of calm and beauty, and will in some small way be encouraged to aspire to the values of the Christian Gospel.

I would be delighted to invite established and experienced groups or individuals who regularly provide arrangements for their churches or places of worship to a meeting to discuss how they can get involved.

Please contact Claire Hanlon in Cathedral House on 0151 709 9222 – extension 201 – or via c.hanlon@metcathedral.org.uk for more details.
