Flood in Lancaster: Year of Mercy Mass cancelled

  • Written by:
  • 1 Reply

The Year of Mercy Mass was cancelled yesterday in the Lancaster Cathedral due to the flood disaster that have rocked the regions of Cumbria and North Lancashire in recent days. So risks were reduced by cancelling the Mass to keep faithfuls in-doors in their homes. Bishop Michael Campbell of Lancaster  sent his message to those so far affected by the flood:

“I assure everyone affected of my ongoing thoughts and prayers, and those of so many more nationwide. May the Lord be close to you in this time of trial.




My heart goes out in particular to those of you who now have had to endure such upheaval and destruction for the second time in recent years. I know that the wonderful spirit of community solidarity which sustained you then, will again give you the courage and determination to meet and deal with the present dreadful adversity.” said Bishop Michael Campbell of Lancaster .

“I pay tribute to all the emergency services for their unstinting work and to the local radio stations for keeping everyone informed, also to those responsible for restoring power and utilities to houses, schools and businesses throughout our regions. We are greatly indebted to them all.” Bishop Michael Campbell continues.

    Does anyone else see the irony in getting the “Year of Mercy” kicked off in this way?
