WELCOME TO NORTHAMPTON CATHEDRAL
We are privileged to host the Relics of St Bernadette
As you come to share this special moment of prayer please help everyone by going to the front of the Cathedral and venerating the relics first. Then if you wish turn to the left and find a place fo your private prayer and reflection.
There is a chance to light candles to honour the saint near the altar for your private intentions.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is available at the time given around the Cathedral, please look for the signs or ask a steward.
Our Cafe 1850 is open at the following times:
Tuesday: 10.00am – 8.00pm
Wednesday 10.00am- 5pm.
Toilets are situated in the front carpark to the side of Cathedral House or in the St Thomas Centre. Accessible toilets are available in the Cathedral itself and the St Thomas Centre.
The St Thomas Centre is open for you to watch the live stream or gather as groups. Please feel free to pop into the centre for a visit.
If you would like donate to cover the cost of the Relics Tour, the booklets, and the bottles for the Lourdes water we would be very grateful.
Pray St. John Henry Newman
O Mother of Jesus, and my Mother, let me dwell with you, cling to you and love you with ever-increasing love.
I promise the honour, love and trust of a child.
Give me a mother’s protection, for I need your watchful care. You know better than any other the thoughts and desires of the Sacred Heart.
Keep constantly before my mind the same thoughts, the same desires,
that my heart may be filled with zeal for the interests of the Sacred Heart of your Divine Son.
Instill in me a love of all that is noble, that I may no longer be easily turned to selfishness.
Help me, dearest Mother, to acquire the virtues that God wants of me:
to forget myself always, to work solely for him, without fear of sacrifice.
I shall always rely on your help to be what Jesus wants me to be. I am his; I am yours, my good Mother!
Give me each day your holy and maternal blessing until my last evening on earth,
when your Immaculate Heart will present me to the heart of Jesus in heaven,
there to love and bless you and your divine Son for all eternity.
