One hundred and fifty people attended a Mass in Thanksgiving for Marriage at the Cathedral on 7 July.

  Our recently updated Diocesan marriage preparation programme ‘Preparing for a Lifetime Together’ was presented to Bishop Ralph by Charles and Jane Perryman, (pictured on the right) and blessed by Bishop Ralph.

  Married couples were invited to renew their wedding day promises and couples who present the marriage preparation programme were blessed.  Newly trained volunteer couple, Sam and Amy Sheridan-Garrity, who brought their four children, were presented with a certificate by Bishop Ralph signifying their commitment to this ministry, (pictured below).
