Easter Greetings from St Albans Cathedral


Dear Friends,

As Easter approaches, I wanted to send you all greetings from St Albans Cathedral. Despite all the continued challenges of the pandemic, I trust that these days are nevertheless full of blessings for you, and that joy and hope feel real and close as we celebrate the Resurrection of the Lord. Please know that we continue to pray for you here at the Shrine of St Alban.


In February the restoration of the Shrine of St Amphibalus was completed and a service of blessing was held. You’ll see from the photo above that one of the stone masons added a little contemporary reference with a small figure wearing a face covering on one corner of the Shrine! I hope some of you may get the chance to visit and have a look at some point – we would love to welcome you.


As the restrictions slowly begin to lift here, we are praying that we will be able to hold our annual pilgrimage over the weekend of June 19th and 20th. If you are planning to come along to this, do drop me a line to let me know.


And so, may St Alban pray for you, and the Risen Lord bless, protect and keep you this Easter.


With my love and prayers,





The Revd Canon Abi Thompson


Acting Dean
