Patronal Festival and Blessing of the Backpacks

Patronal Festival and Blessing of the Backpacks

On Sunday 27 January we celebrate our Patronal Festival with a Festal Choral Eucharist at 10am followed by a congregational lunch. We invite you to contribute to the lunch by bringing either a salad, dessert or something to drink. Pixie Rowe and a team will be coordinating. Please let the office know what you'll bring, and if you're prepared to help with running the lunch - either email admin@wellingtoncathedral.org.nz or add your name to the list on the desk at the rear of the Nave.

During our 10am service we mark the start of the new academic year with the 'blessing of the backpacks', for all of our Cathedral family involved in education. Bring a backpack, laptop, pencil or any other symbol of your learning/teaching and we will offer a blessing for you.
