We were delighted to host Chris Backhouse talk about the ceremonies of Holy Week and Easter on 8th April. Chris gave a very animated and fascinating description of all that he and his team put in to the liturgies at the Cathedral, and brought along a number of very precious (and some very antique) objects to show to the audience and hand around. The item which justly received the most attention was an ornately carved chalice which had been presented to the Archdiocese by the Holy See.
We look forward to hearing Chris Backhouse talk to the Friends again soon!
With thanks to Jordan Grantham for the photographs.
