Renewing the Cathedral

Project 2015 - Rediscovering our Heritage

Our new Choir Stalls have arrived and are in use in the nave. Work on the Project should begin in the Cathedral in early June. In the meantime the work to renew the Nave Roof begins on 5th May and continues through until mid August. All our Services and events will continue as normal with any small changes indicated on our website and our weekly news sheet.

No Evensongs this week Choir Holiday 

Kate Taylorís funeral will be held at Westgate Unitarian Chapel on Friday 5 June at 12.30pm followed by interment at Sugar lane Cemetery at 2.00pm. The family would like to invite her friends and colleagues to come and celebrate Kateís life, then to join us for refreshments at Create, the café attached to the Library at Wakefield One. (It just seemed the most appropriate place, since Kate so loved books!)

A celebration of Kateís life and a service of memorial is planned for the Cathedral in the near future, details of which will follow in due course.

In the interests of practicality, it would help greatly if you would indicate if you would like to attend, and also if you can join us for refreshments, so that we can ensure that we cater appropriately. Please email admin@wakefield-cathedral.org.uk.
