He is Risen!

Bishop Brian turns 73!

Last night not only did we celebrate the Easter Vigil, the baptism of two new Christians and the reception of eight new members of the Catholic Church, we also marked Bishop Brian's 73rd birthday! Happy Birthday Bishop Brian. Here we see Bishop Brian cutting his cake, and (thanks to Lancaster Cathedral Blog) a picture of a much younger Bishop Brian, when he was a pupil at the Cathedral School in Lancaster.

Newly Blessed Oils

Last night at The Chrism Mass, held this year at Our Lady and the Apostles Church in Stockport, Bishop Brian blessed the three oils that will be used through out the diocese in the coming year. The Oils were then brought back to The Cathedral, where they will be displayed in their new cabinets. The Oils were placed in the cabinets for the first time today ready for this evenings Mass of the Lord's Supper.
