Archbishop Officially Opens Blackburn’s new Cathedral Court

‘During his visit to the Cathedral, Archbishop Sentamu said, “This fantastic development sees the culmination of not just the last 20 years of work but the realisation of William Temple’s original vision that the Cathedral should become a place of influence. It is a fitting tribute that a key part of the development that links the old to the new has been called the Temple Gallery. Creating change to enhance our ministry is a joyous moment to celebrate.”

Hundreds of people attended the service of celebration and saw the dedication of Cathedral Court and the blessing of the development by the Archbishop in a special celebratory outdoor portion of the service.

The development is the first cloisters to be built at a UK cathedral for over 500 years and also marks the final portion of the large scale regeneration of the areas around the Cathedral.’
