Cathedral “Blessing of the Backpacks” returns

The Cathedral will hold their annual Blessing of the Backpacks this Sunday, for those amongst us who are returning to school or tertiary study.  It’s a great way to set aside this year of study and hard work for the Lord, and ask His blessing on our learning.  The service will be part of their usual 10am Choral Eucharist service, and will be followed by a Parish lunch.

The Cathedral also wishes to advise all that this Sunday marks the return to their usual Sunday and weekday schedule of worship and prayer.  This Sunday, Canon Simon Winn, the Acting Dean, will preach at the 8:00am Holy Communion service and the 10:00am Choral Eucharist, and Archdeacon Judy Hardie will preach at the 5:00pm Choral Evensong service.

Next Monday the 29th, morning and evening prayer resumes at 8:30am and 5:30pm respectively, and weekday Eucharist services resume at 12:15pm.  Thursday Choral Evensong services will resume from the 8th of February at 5:30pm.
