Mothering Sunday Festival
Mothering Sunday Festival at the Cathedral
Around a hundred and fifty people gathered at the Cathedral Church to celebrate the Mothering Sunday Festival with Prayer and Praise, Singing and Dancing, Eucharist and Food. The Cathedral ladies, many from the Egbo family background, processed through the centre isle of the Cathedral singing and dancing giving thanks for the gift of motherhood and remembering mothers around the world.
The Liturgy was set to Eucharist setting by world renowned composer, Prof Paul Mealor and conducted by the Master of Choristers at the Cathedral, Prof Andrew Morrison. The setting by Prof Mealor evoked the beauty, tenderness and robustness of motherhood. And the words of the Liturgy brought home for many, the motherhood of God.
The Lenten Choral Meditation in the afternoon was a perfect end to a most beautiful day. In between the two worship events, the John Skinner Centre of filled with people, food, drinks, music, dance and many children. The day was a foretaste of heaven. God bless all those who put in hours of hard work to make it such a special day.
