Lady Day Christ Church Cathedral March, 25th 2019

A lovely day in the Cathedral celebrating The Feast of the Annunciation to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Our Presider and Preacher was The Venerable Arthur Copeman. He spoke of Mary and her willingness to obey Gods wishes to conceive and carry a baby which would be known as Jesus even though she had not been with man. Mary said, “Here am I, the servant of the Lord; let it be with me according to your word.”

Our new Chaplain, Reverend Nicole Baldwin was commissioned.

The Banner parade was once again a joy and a beautiful site to admire going through the Cathedral.

Laurel Brook was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation from Kate Doran for her service as a Hospital Visitor.

We then had the pleasure of listening to The Very Reverend Katherine Bowyer. She spoke of her Christian journey and her journey and joys of becoming the Dean of the Cathedral. She is the first woman to be Dean, the first Novocastrian, the first to have studied here at Morpeth. Katherine said she had the best job and the most beautiful place to work.

Katherine  was thanked by Laurel Brook.
