Support Catholic Education
Posted: 02 Dec
2017
The Government is making a critical decision on whether to overturn the admissions cap which prevents new Catholic schools from allowing all Catholic pupils to attend. The Prime Minister has acknowledged that this policy discriminates against Catholics and had previously promised to abandon it. Now the Government may decide to keep this discriminatory policy in place instead of removing it. We need you to tell the Government not to discriminate against Catholics and to remove the admissions cap on new faith-based schools. 
Visit www.catholicnews.org.uk/education-cap to write to the Government and urge them to drop their policy which bans new Catholic schools.

New Hymn Books
Updated: 23 Nov
2017
Thank you to all those who have sponsored a hymn. There are still some available that can be sponsored. A book plate with a dedication will be placed in each hymn book. The cost is £10 per hymn book and forms are available at the back of the cathedral.

Works at Cathedral this Autumn
Posted: 13 Oct
2017
It will not have escaped attention that a lot of scaffolding is being erected. The earlier investigations showed that plaster has been falling out where the roof construction after the War has some unintended gaps.  Additionally, it was found that the stone ribs are able to move which should not be the case.  Work to rectify these problems will start soon and we are grateful to the Archbishop and the diocesan trustees who are funding the work as the parish could not have afforded to do it. The work will hopefully be completed before Christmas. There may be some noise & disruption during the work.
