Liverpool's Metropolitan Cathedral reopens

By Peter Heneghan

Archbishop Malcolm formally reopened the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King at 12 noon on Wednesday 1 July. After leading a short prayer, the Archbishop, together with Canon Tony O’Brien, the Cathedral Dean, knocked on the bronze doors of the Cathedral which then were opened.
 
The Cathedral, which is subject to the same restrictions as all churches in the Archdiocese, will be open from 12 noon to 4pm each day for private prayer.
 
Public celebrations of Mass will restart from the weekend of 11/12 July. There will be a Vigil Mass at 4pm on Saturdays and two Masses on Sunday morning at 9am and 11am. All celebrations of Mass, both at the weekend and during the week at 12 noon each day, will be in the main Cathedral at the High Altar. The 11am Mass on Sundays will continue to be livestreamed for those who are not able to attend in person.
