Footslogging


This detail from our statue of St Peter signals yet another break - until the end of May. I'll continue the blog when I return, but issue advanced (and regretful) warning that the blog will conclude in June, as I prepare for a new post.

I knew it, I knew it - Rome has claimed you, probably when we needed you the most, with the march of other religions a serious threat to our Christianity in this country. There is no denying this. You will be seriously missed, not only for being your brilliant self, but as a dear and caring Priest with a undeniable mission from the Lord to help us. You are woven into the fabric of Westminster Cathedral, as it is woven into you, wherever you are, wherever you may be. I will pray for Fr Christopher and his Sub Administrator Fr Witon that they will continue your good works.
We will always pray for you, please pray for us. With marvellous memories, Jan

I think it's important that the blog continues after your departure Father. Perhaps it's a bit much to expect the new administrator to continue it but hopefully some way will be found for continuing this valuable forum for raising awareness of the cathedral. Maybe some more junior clerics or interns etc could collectively keep it together.... or maybe those responsible for the cathedral/diocese arcives/history.

Speaking from "across the pond," I too shall miss this blog. I love visiting the Cathedral whenever I'm in London and I know that all I've learned about its history and denizens will enrich my next visit.

All the best to you, Father.

I am not a parishioner of Westminster Cathedral, nor have I had the opportunity to visit, but I would very much like to see the blog continued if possible. At any rate, it has been wonderful to read. Thank you and God bless!

Well done on the mosaic plan for the Cathedral. So glad to see these excellent plans and sorry to hear you will not be there to oversee it come to being.

God bless you in your new appointment.

From way out here in Utah (USA), I'll miss this blog.

I agree with big benny; the blog is a window onto the Cathedral which gives a fascinating insight into its life today and in the past, something which can't be achieved in quite the same way with the more conventional website. Thank you for sharing it with us, Father.
