The Blog Continues ..!

Many of you have sent kind messages about the blog, and wondered whether it might continue. I've been in discussions with the Administrator (who is very keen that the blog continue) and with several other chaplains, and am delighted that Fr Tim Dean will take over the blog ( - he is already attired for business, above!), with other pictorial contributions from Fr Michael Archer (who has just purchased a super new camera).

I've hoped that this weblog has given some vision of the life behind the scenes at the Cathedral, as well as recording some of its great moments, and presenting (and indeed archiving) some of its rich history. Above all, I hope it has helped bring this extraordinary and glorious House of God to a wider audience. It is one of the duties of an Administrator to raise the profile of the Cathedral, and I have been gratified at the number of visitors who have told me that they have become aware of Westminster Cathedral through the blog.

I'll give my final posting tomorrow - but it is good to know it will mark only a stage in the continuing life of the blog!

I've loved Westminster Cathedral all my life - long before I became a Catholic. Your blog has opened my eyes to many aspects of it which I was simply unaware of.

Many thanks for all the hard work maintaing the blog, and every blessing for the future.

We are a small parish in Slovakia with Hungarian Christians. Thank you that we can read about English catholics, you are all kind and friendly people. Hungarian and Slovak catholics have no possibility to visit London - blog is nice and useful. God bless Mons. Mark Langham, the all clergy and sisters !
