The Cathedral is open daily from 9.30 to 16.30 in the summer, 10 to 4 in the winter.
Many people find its tranquil spaces allows them respite and make it easier for them
to pray. While most will find their own 'best space', the east end of the south aisle
has been furnished with private prayer much in mind. Appropriately this is where
the Sanctuary Cross stands, just at the entrance to the Mitchell Chapel. Close by
is a stand of candles: the candle flame has been a Christian symbol for centuries.
Here too is the 'Prayer Tree'. Some people like to note their prayers (slips of paper
are in a wooden alms bowl) and fasten them to a branch. These are gathered up weekly
and incorporated in the prayers of the congregation.
Near the prayer tree you will also find a prayer leaflet (pdf-file) which can help
when finding it to hard to pray.
Meets every Monday from 1-2pm in the Gatehouse. All are welcome to come along and
join us for a time of stillness and silence. Speak to Anne (tel.07938870940) or
Val (tel.07787244020) if you are interested.
