Dear Friend of the Cathedral

A truncated newsletter today because I’ll be spending the afternoon having lengthy dental surgery. However, here are a few things to note:

Office computers have been updated and email addresses (including mine) changed. Here is the updated contact list. For the time being emails will still get through by the old addresses, but please try to use the new ones!

Would you consider donating flowers to beautify the Cathedral during November? It’s the season of remembrance, so a nice way to honour someone dear to you. You can sign up Sunday on the sheet in the baptistry, speak to Vera Burt or email Elizabeth Shama, our Cathedral Administrator.

A reminder that Sunday, November 4 at 4 pm, the Cathedral will be holding a special service remembering the departed. Join us for a service of readings, music and reflection. At this service names of those who have died will read. Please add names to the notebook in the baptistry on Sunday. It will be placed near the candle stand on Thursday next week. During the service the intercessor will read names from the book which will then be placed on the altar. You can also email names to and I will add them for you.

This year the Grenadier Guards will not be joining the 10 am service on November 11 because they will be participating in a special parade at the cenotaph on that day. They will have a separate service in the cathedral on Saturday,November 10th at 10 am, and you are invited to attend.

The English Bible study group met for the first time last night. We decided that we would like to hold monthly discussions, in people’s homes, possibly on the second Wednesday of each month. However, the next gathering will be on Wednesday, November 28, probably at Ann’s house. The group voted to continue reading the general epistles. You will get details nearer the time.

I have in front of me a camera lost by someone at the ordination reception. It is a Canon Power Shot A530 and was found in Fulford Hall. There are pictures of the ordination in the camera. Please contact the cathedral office if this is your camera!
