LIVERPOOL CATHEDRAL CELEBRATING 50 YEARS
- A LOOK BACK AT OUR COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE
by Helen Jones, Pastoral Associate in Liverpool South Pastoral Area
Gemma Lewis, a kind-hearted parishioner at St Anthony of Padua, Mossley Hill, came up with an idea of placing Easter flowers and prayer cards on the corners of local streets for passers-by to take to spread the joy of Easter.
She contacted Father Kevin Hanley, the Parish Priest, who thought it was a great idea and together with her fiancé, Carl and support from the Pastoral Associate, Helen Jones, who got publicity on BBC Radio Merseyside, she contacted the Tesco store on Mather Avenue.
They generously donated flowers which were then left on Penny Lane, Dovedale Road, Queens Drive and Calderstones Park together with prayer cards. The flowers and cards were taken even before all the four locations had been reached.
‘Even our smallest actions can lead to great things’ wrote Saint Therese of Lisieux. Gemma is looking forward to trying it out again next year.
