There is a rapidly increasing need for help of this kind and daily, people in our own area come to the Cathedral looking for help.
The Fairtrade sale and tea and coffee donations last Sunday raised the amazing amount of £212. Very many thanks to everyone who gave of their skills and money so generously.

The Cathedral Secretary, Clare Davidson will be leaving her post here in a few weeks. At the time of her appointment in July 2013 we were aware that her commitment to the fledgling Aberdeen University Centre for Ministry Studies would take precedence if further funding was obtained and that is now the case. We are glad that Clare has been in the office during this challenging and busy time for the Cathedral. The vacancy has been advertised in the papers and elsewhere but we know that personal contact is often the best way so we urge you to spread the word and ask anyone interested to make contact with the Cathedral office for more details. We send best wishes to Clare and the Centre for Ministry Studies.
