15th October 2017 Service to mark the beginning of the Legal Year

Liverpool Cathedral

The High Sheriff of Merseyside, Stephen Burrows DL invites you to:

A Service to mark the beginning of the Legal Year

at 10.30am on Sunday 15th October 2017

at Liverpool Cathedral, St James Mount, Liverpool, L1 7AZ


The theme of the service for this year is ‘Justice in the Community

University students/youth groups from across Merseyside region are particularly encouraged to join this special service and they will be given the opportunity to meet the various members of the judicial system over light refreshments afterwards.

Her Majesty the Queen, at her coronation, promised to serve her people and to ensure justice was delivered in the Kingdom. Following her example, once a year, for one hour, Her Majesty’s Judges and others attend the Cathedral and by so doing acknowledge a higher authority than themselves, one recognised by all faiths as a merciful Judge.

The Address will challenge all present as to the meaning of true justice and will urge all to consider how it might be worked out in the communities which we serve. Although the Cathedral service is a specifically Christian one, those of other faiths and none are very warmly welcomed.
