THE Dean of
Liverpool, the Very Revd Peter Wilcox (far
right), joined a team of handbell-ringers to announce the
launch of the Cathedral Shop stall in the Christmas market in
Liverpool city centre. They were led by the cathedral Ringing
Master, Len Mitchell, in ringing some Christmas carols.
The market is in the aptly named Church Street, and the stall is
on a prime site next to the Christmas tree. It will be open every
day until 22 December, with a wide range of Christmas gifts, many
of them with the theme of Liverpool or the cathedral. Very popular
are the nativity sets, specially designed decorations, and
cathedral Christmas cards. There are also brochures about the
cathedral's Christmas services, carol services, and other events.
And, of course, the Cathedral Shop is also open, with an even wider
range of gifts and nativity sets.
