Worship has been at the very heart of Priory life for centuries. Throughout history, people from all around the world have made pilgrimages to the Priory for prayer and worship, each with their own stories to tell. If you look close enough, marks and notches can be found where pilgrims have left their mark for others to discover. Exploring the Priory will uncover myths, legends and tales of the past, housed in the impressive building that stood all those years ago.
The Priory is open to everyone, and welcomes people from all walks of life to come and experience the church at work. The church wouldn’t be what it is today without the people behind it all, so come and meet the team and find out how they fit in to the Priory’s story.
So why on earth am I sharing a photo of an empty chairs and an empty stage I hear you ask. It is simply to remind anyone who is interested that the choir, children and community of Cartmel are giving their rehearsal rendition of Godspell tomorrow afternoon. It'll take place at 3.30pm in place of evensong and you'll be very welcome.
At 2pm today we will be welcoming Bishop James, members of the Mothers' Union and any friends or visitors who would like to join us for the Carlisle Diocese Mothers' Union Triennial Festival Eucharist.
