Pallium Mass in St Peter's Basilica

Pallium Mass in St Peter's Basilica

Archbishop Malcolm received his Pallium - the symbol of the office of a metropolitan archbishop - from our Holy Father Pope Francis on Sunday 29th June in Rome on the Feast of St Peter and St Paul.
 
The Pallium is a sign of communion with the Pope and of leadership.  It is a woven band worn across the shoulders whilst celebrating mass. 
 
The Choir of the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King also performed at the mass in St Peter’s Basilica. 

Christopher McElroy, Director of Music said: "This was a wonderful opportunity for the choir to travel to Rome with our Archbishop as he receives his Pallium from the Pope and formally begins his ministry here in Liverpool."

The Mass was broadcast on EWTN at 8.30 am BST, and repeated at 7.00 pm BST.
