LIVERPOOL CATHEDRAL CELEBRATING 50 YEARS
- A LOOK BACK AT OUR COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE
The world of education has experienced great disruption this year and, in these last weeks, the publication of the annual exam results has been surrounded by controversy. As always there are moments of jubilation and disappointment at this time, but the focus on education gives us all the opportunity to gives thanks for all who work in Catholic education and for the work of the students themselves. This month we reflect ‘results day’ in the archdiocese.
In normal circumstances Michael Bennett, Anthony Cave, John McCarthy and John Power would have been ordained to the permanent diaconate together in the Metropolitan Cathedral, instead they were ordained in the parishes where they will be serving. We meet them and reflect on their celebrations. Our prayers go with them as they begin their ministry among us.
Two hundred years ago Elizabeth Prout was born in Shrewsbury. As Mother Mary Joseph she founded the Sisters of the Cross and Passion and served in St Helens where she is buried in the Shrine at Sutton alongside Blessed Dominic Barberi CP and Father Ignatius Spencer CP. Sister Dominic Savio CP, the historian of the Order, looks back on a life of service in our archdiocese.
