The historic silver plate that was stolen from the Library at St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast some weeks ago has been discovered.
will be available in due course.
The Dean of Belfast, The Very Revd John Mann said:
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!”
