This year there will be two services.
The first is in the Cathedral on October 3rd for the Candidates to be licensed and a limited number of guests. This will be a relatively short service without communion based on the wording of the usual service. I am hopeful that this could be recorded, even if it cannot be streamed live so that it could be watched on YouTube later in the day. Bishop Hugh will be presiding and preaching.
On the 10th of October the service, with music (if we can get permission for the videos) when candidates who could not attend the cathedral service will be licensed, those moving to the diocese given their licenses, milestones recognised and so on. The warden’s committee decided that Holy Communion would not be part of this service either.
The candidates have been asked for their choices for hymns and we will endeavour to fit them in. Reader, Liz Lane will be preaching and the service led by Bishop Hugh.
I have been working at a PowerPoint for ZOOM and a booklet for the Cathedral which I hope will be helpful in discussions to get the services as good as they can be 🙂
