This much-loved cathedral is one of Pugin’s finest creations, and has been well prayed in from the time of its building in 1841 until now. It was the first Catholic cathedral to be erected in Britain since the Reformation, and so has a noble history.

Today let us pray for the spiritual life of the Cathedral and for all who work or who visit there, that they may be greatly blessed by their contact with this holy place. May God bless you this day.
