Laurencetide At Christ Church Cathedral

This year Dublin and Glendalough is celebrating its 800th anniversary. As part of this celebration Christ Church Cathedral will host a week of celebrations called Laurencetide, using the feast of St. Laurence O’Toole, Abbot of Glendalough and Archbishop of Dublin as inspiration. All three saints were involved in the building of Christ Church.

The celebrations will kick off on the 13th of November 2016, with a visit from the Archbishop, Most Rev Diarmuid Martin. On Sunday the 13th of November he will deliver a sermon and be accompanied by Dublin and Glendalough parish choirs.

Lectures on the cathedral’s early days will run throughout the week and an exhibition about St. Laurence will go on display. There will also be tours and workshops for diocesan schools held.
