LIVERPOOL CATHEDRAL CELEBRATING 50 YEARS
- A LOOK BACK AT OUR COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE
It is with great pleasure that we report the Ordination to the Diaconate of Brother Andrew Cleary, a former KSC grand knight and longstanding member of Council 493.
Bro Andrew was ordained at the Metropolitan Cathedral on Sunday 18 July at a special Ordination Mass for four new deacons, celebrated by Archbishop Malcolm McMahon, the former ecclesiastical adviser to the KSC. This event was already covered extensively in last month’s edition but we take this opportunity to congratulate Bro Andrew on his ordination – a great personal achievement, which has also brought credit to his family and to the order. He will serve as a deacon at St Paul’s, West Derby.

• The Knights of Liverpool province are greatly honoured to be preparing for the KSC’s Annual Supreme Conference here next month. This is normally staged in Glasgow, where the Order was founded, but this year is being held in Liverpool in recognition of the city having become the first place outside of Scotland to establish a KSC council and province 100 years ago.
The conference takes place over three days from 1-3 October at the Liner Hotel and will conclude with Mass at the Metropolitan Cathedral on Sunday 3rd.
