Our vision is also for a sufficiently robust resource base that we are able to be creative in our activity, confident that we have sufficient financial and human resources to deliver our vision without compromise. Our heritage and our future are rooted in the words of Jesus Christ, ‘Father forgive’, used by Provost Dick Howard on 15th November 1940 in the Cathedral ruins. Our calling is to be a people and place of reconciliation, one that marks us out in English cathedrals as having a unique role. It is this calling, embodied as it is in the architecture of the Cathedral, ruined and rebuilt, which provides the core rationale for our life and mission. The importance of our location is the way in which it embodies our mission. Hence our emphasis on ‘Reconciliation, reconciliation, reconciliation’. The whole life of the cathedral is caught up and expressed in our work as a Centre for Peace and Reconciliation. We invite you to discover the part you can play in taking this vision forward.
