Clifton Cathedral’s year long series of environmental events ‘Sound of Many Waters’ is drawing to a close.

Throughout this wonderful year exploring our relationship with the natural world we have been starling watching, prayed during a night vigil, heard about the wisdom of saints, been on family nature walks, listen to the dawn chorus in the Bishop’s garden and learned a great deal through a multifaith discussion following the symbol crossing of the iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge.

Schools have also responded ‘Sound of Many Waters’ with many taking on specific projects and others considering their impact on the environment.

The year of events concludes on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 October. On Saturday afternoon there will be an art exhibition about nature and the environment. It will include pictures from the many events that made up ‘Sound of Many Waters’. This takes place in the Apostle Room at Clifton Cathedral.

Saturday’s 6.00 pm Mass will be themed on the environment and will be celebrated by Cathedral Dean Canon Alan Finley and Father Chris Boles SJ, Vicar Episcopal for Justice and Peace in the Archdiocese of St Andrews and Edinburgh.

On Sunday Bishop Declan will celebrate the 11.00 am Mass. The Bishop will reflect on the theme of creation. Afterwards there will be refreshments in the Apostle Room with short talks by Father Chris Boles SJ, Mary Colwell, the award-winning TV and radio natural history producer who inspired ‘Sound of Many Waters’, and Martin Palmer Secretary General of the Alliance of Religions and Conservation.

Everyone is very welcome at these events which will summaries the year’s events and point towards the future.
