New Life!

Saturday saw the opening of the new Cathedral Gardens by the Bishop and the Mayor of Leicester during an afternoon of celebration called “Garden of Life.” It is hoped that these new gardens will be an opportunity for people of Leicester to step aside in the hubbub of the city’s life and find peace.

The Cathedral next door witnesses to the New Life that is offered by Christ.

It was therefore appropriate that, after many joyful activities, the day concluded with an outdoor service of baptism by immersion. Bishop Tim heard the candidates’ professions of their Faith and then plunged them under the water. As they left the pool, Bishop Christopher confirmed them, praying that the Holy Spirit would indwell their lives.
