Remembering the Fallen of WW1

Sunday 3rd August 2014

Archbishop Bernard will celebrate the 11.00am Mass to Commemorate the Centenary of WWI which will be celebrated as a requiem for The Fallen of the First World War. One of the Hardman windows in the south aisle honours the men of the cathedral who fell in what is referred to as the Great War. Below the window is our War Memorial Shrine designed by Gerald Hardman with a carving of Christ laid in his mother’s arms after being taken down from the cross. It contains the Roll of Honour and mementoes of many of the 200 men from the cathedral parish. The Memorial was dedicated on Armistice Day 1921.
