St Anne’s Cathedral Stolen Silver Chalice And Patens Found historic silver plate that was stolen from the Library at St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast some weeks ago has been discovered. 

Further details will be available in due course.
The Dean of Belfast, The Very Revd John Mann said:

“Needless to say that I am delighted and relieved to hear that the stolen cathedral silver plate has been found, and that St Anne’s will have it back soon. These communion vessels are important to us, not for their monetary worth, which is comparatively small, but for their historic and sacramental connection with the cathedral worshipping community, and to the old St Anne’s church which stood on the site before the cathedral was built. I would like to thank all who have been responsible for the recovery of these vessels, which we will have back in use, with much joy, as soon as possible!”
