LIVERPOOL CATHEDRAL CELEBRATING 50 YEARS
- A LOOK BACK AT OUR COMMEMORATIVE ISSUE
Archbishop Malcolm Mc Mahon OP will celebrate Mass for Bishop Vincent Malone on Monday 1 June at 4.00 pm in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel of the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King, Liverpool.
The Mass will be celebrated without a congregation and will be livestreamed so that his family and friends may join the celebration. Details of the livestream are available on the Cathedral website at
Under current restrictions it is not possible to celebrate a Funeral Mass in a church building and Bishop Malone’s body will not be taken to the Cathedral.
In line with the restrictions Bishop Malone’s funeral will be a private graveside service.
The Roman Catholic Church has a centuries old tradition of offering Mass for those who have died, and in these days many such Masses have been livestreamed from churches throughout the country for the families of those unable to be taken to church.
Bishop Vincent Malone served as Auxiliary Bishop of Liverpool from 1989 until his retirement in 2006. He died on Monday 18 May, aged 88.
