Special service at Blackburn Cathedral

Celebrating our 900th Anniversary with the Archbishop of York!

Archbishop Stephen Cottrell is visiting Blackburn Diocese at the end of May and will preach and preside at the Cathedral Eucharist on Sunday May 29th. We have been invited together with the congregations of St. Peter’s Burnley and St. Bartholomew’s Colne who are also celebrating 900 years of Christian Worship this year.

There will be no 10 am service or 6.30 pm Evening Prayer at St. Mary Magdalene’s that day. (8 am Holy Communion as usual)
