Westminster Cathedral: The Appeal

Solomon, I Have Surpassed Thee gives details of the urgent restoration appeal launched for Westminster Cathedral

This week Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor launched a £3 million appeal for Westminster Cathedral to fund a major programme of work including urgent repairs to the Cathedral's domes and the replacement of outdated electrical and heating systems.

The Cathedral does not charge an admission fee. It receives no financial aid from the Government, or from the Vatican, but is dependant on voluntary donations to pay for its running costs.

The blog of Mgr Mark Langham, the Administrator of Westminster Cathedral, gives more details and how to contribute.
