Welcome to Westminster Cathedral

The Cathedral’s New Crib

Behold, a Virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and his name will be called Emmanuel

As we enter the second stage of Advent, it is quite common to hear or to read about people regretting the way in which Christmas seems to start earlier each year, and how the particular character of Advent, with its accent on expectant and hope-filled waiting, gets pushed further and further into the shadows. I even wrote words like that in the Chairman’s Letter for the December Oremus, but to my great surprise and joy, this doesn’t seem to have happened this year and we have maintained the ”holy hush” of Advent right up to this weekend. The Christmas trees are now in the Cathedral and will be blessed at the Carol service this Sunday afternoon, and the Crib will set up in St Joseph’s Chapel early next week, and remember that this year we shall have the new figures of the Magi, thanks to your generosity.

We continue to expand the range of product in our gift shop which relates to or echoes the art and architecture of the Cathedral. Recent such editions are glass roundels which replicate in glass images, typically mosaics which can be seen in the Cathedral. The image of Our Lady of Walsingham which adorns the side of the pulpit in the Cathedral is a good example of this.
