Dear [First Name]
We've got quite a lot coming up over the next week or so at St Mary's. This weekend is particularly busy with it being Doors Open Weekend in Glasgow.
On Friday evening there will be a Late Night Labyrinth - a further opportunity to walk the new labyrinth. Doors open at 8 pm and Compline will be said around the labyrinth at 9.30 pm. It will be a meditative calm space both for labyrinth walkers and those who just want some peace.
On Saturday, Doors Open Day gets underway with quite a lot of activities. There are a number of stalls and there's coffee available to those visiting. This is a good opportunity to bring friends in who have never seen the building before and would like a look around outside the context of a service.
There are tours of the Bell Ringing Chamber between 2 pm and 4 pm on both Saturday and Sunday. There's an opportunity for young people to try out being a chorister for a morning starting at 10.45 am on Saturday. There's also the chance to experience the Godly Play material and chat to our Children and Families Development Officer, Lorraine Darlow.
There's also a Rough Guide to St Mary's programme running on Saturday starting at 10.30 am in the cathedral office at 3 Napiershall Street. This will include a session from me about what makes me tick and what my vision for St Mary's is all about, a behind the scenes tour of the building and a session with the Vice Provost, the Rev Cedric Blakey on "Everything you wanted to know about St Mary's but were afriad to ask". There are still a few places available on this. Please sign up for it on the website: http://thecathedral.org.uk/2016/08/rough-guide-st-marys-3/
Finally, the following weekend we're doing a BBC Radio Broadcast live on Radio 4 at 8.10 am on 25 September 2016. This will take the place of the 8.30 am service that day and will include a blessing of the pilgrims who are going to Iona from St Mary's that day. We need a congregation and if you'd like to join in, please be in your seat by 7.45 am, sparing a thought for the engineers who will start that day at about 5.30 am.
The Very Rev Kelvin Holdsworth
Provost of St Mary's Cathedral, Glasgow
