The following arrangements have been announced:
Cardinal Cormac’s body will be received into Westminster Cathedral at 10am on Tuesday 12 September 2017. This will be a short service and then the Cardinal’s body will lie in Westminster Cathedral throughout Tuesday. All are welcome to visit to pay their respects, pray, and sign the book of condolence. At 5pm on Tuesday 12 September 2017 there will be Vespers of the Dead, at which Cardinal Vincent will preside and Archbishop Bernard Longley will preach. The Cathedral will remain open after Vespers until 8pm to provide a further opportunity for quiet prayer.
The Funeral Mass will be at 12 noon on Wednesday 13 September 2017. Cardinal Vincent will preside and Archbishop George Stack will be the preacher. Due to the national nature of this occasion and pressure on places, entry to the Cathedral will be by ticket only.
On Sunday 1 October, a Memorial Mass will be celebrated by Bishop Richard in Arundel Cathedral at 3pm. All are welcome to attend.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon him.
May he rest in peace. Amen
