. Dear Parishioners
A year ago Pope Francis announced that from the end of November 2014 to February 2016 the Church throughout the world will celebrate a Year of Consecrated Life. Men and women in Religious Life are not so evident in everyday life these days so it is hoped that in the coming year events and celebrations in our archdiocese will highlight the role that consecrated people play in the life of the Church.
The Church’s objectives for this year are: to remember with thanks all that has been achieved through the lives and commitment of consecrated Religious in the recent past; to look to the future with hope; to recognize those Religious who live the present with passion. Events and celebrations will take place throughout the archdiocese during the year to highlight the contribution of consecrated life to the Church and, particularly, to the Archdiocese of Liverpool
Next Sunday, 23 November, the feast of Christ the King, Archbishop Malcolm will inaugurate this Year of Consecrated Life in the archdiocese during Choral Evening Prayer at 3pm in the Metropolitan Cathedral. With the cathedral choir leading the prayer and representatives of Religious Congregations serving in the archdiocese, this should be a memorable celebration. I invite you all to join us at 3pm next Sunday in the Metropolitan Cathedral.
You are all invited to join Archbishop Malcolm at Choral Evening Prayer in the Metropolitan Cathedral at 3pm on Sunday 23 November. This is to celebrate the inauguration of the Year of Consecrated Life.
