A Virtual Tour about the West Window will be coming soon.
Our Hidden Nature Virtual Tour:
Our Hidden Nature Tour was developed to celebrate the Heritage Open Days Festival of 2020.
In this video tour, we explore the hidden nature of St Marie’s, as well as their meanings. From lions to lilies, pelicans to pomegranates, acorns to ammonites and sea creatures great and small, winged bulls and eagles… All have a special significance:
The St Joseph Virtual Tour:
On 8th December 2020, Pope Francis proclaimed that the next 12 months would be a “Year of Saint Joseph”. This was to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the declaration of St Joseph the Worker, as Patron Saint of the Universal Church.
Saint Joseph usually goes unnoticed. As Mary’s husband (St Marie), he was given the important task of watching over, supporting and caring for both the Virgin Mary and Jesus. He was the daily, discreet and hidden presence in the raising of Jesus, who never-the-less played – in the words of Pope Francis – “an incomparable role in the history of salvation”. In this video tour, we explore the tributes and memorials to St Joseph within St Marie’s Cathedral, learn a little more about him as a man, and learn about the individuals behind those memorials.
