Philip Buckler, Dean Gavin Kirk, Precentor Mark Hocknull, Chancellor John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Cathedral Deacon For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven Those familiar words and the following verses from the third chapter of the Book Ecclesiastes remind us of life’s totality and variety; that some things happen to us (war and peace, birth and death) others require our own involvement and action (planting and harvesting, building up and breaking down).
Sermon Preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Subdean, The Revd Canon John Patrick, on Sunday 18th January 2015. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of our hearts be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, our strength and our redeemer. Samuel said, Speak, for your servant is listening. Then the Lord said to Samuel, See I am to do something in Israel that will make both ears of anyone who hears of it tingle. I have a confession […]
Director of Music Aric Prentice is currently on his way back to the USA to work with the choir of Christ Church Cathedral in Lexington Kentucky. Their boys, girls and men spent a week singing the services in Lincoln in the summer of 2009 and since then Aric has worked with the choir on several occasions. The music program that Erich and Kathleen Balling have set up at Christ Church is very impressive and it is always great to hear […]
Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Dean, the Very Revd Philip Buckler, at the Sung Eucharist on the Feast of the Baptism of Christ, 11th January 2015 Early yesterday morning was one of those moments appropriate for this season of Epiphany – a moment of recognition or manifestation. The small group of us gathered for Morning Prayer here in the Cathedral could hear the raging storm and high winds howling outside. Yet inside we were in the calm of […]
Philip Buckler, Dean Gavin Kirk, Precentor Mark Hocknull, Chancellor John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Cathedral Deacon Foundations are important. Beginnings are important. Resolutions are important. I have often noted that when a new building is being put up there is a flurry of activity with people and lorries and deliveries but little visible sign of the new building actually taking shape. Essentially the foundations are being put in place to ensure that the structure to be built will be secure […]

Philip Buckler, Dean Gavin Kirk, Precentor Mark Hocknull, Chancellor John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Cathedral Deacon Many thanks indeed to the host of people whose combined efforts made for a very successful Cathedral contribution to the Christmas Market. Although the number of people visiting was down on last year, income was up in every department, and we were able to increase the number of things to which visitors could come. We believe therefore that the visitor experience was improved in […]
Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by Philippa White, Assistant Curate at Lincoln Cathedral and St John the Baptist, Ermine. +May the words of my mouth and the meditations of all our hearts be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, our strength and our salvation. Amen. Happy New Year! Well, happy new church year, anyway. A year that starts, not with a new month or a new phase of the moon or even a significant festival – but with a period […]
