Civic Mass

On Sunday 2th November 2018 Sh. Mahmood Dhalla attended Civic Mass at Metropolitan Cathedral & Basilica of St. Chad representing Al-Mahdi Institute. It is an important event in the calendar of the Cathedral as joined in by representatives of the Lord Mayor, the judiciary, service chiefs, council leaders, with representatives from other faith groups and those from diocesan organisations as well as regular worshippers.

This year’s Civic Mass on the Feast of Christ the King was our Cathedral’s principal commemoration of the centenary of the First World War.

The date also marked National Youth Sunday, whereby young people across the Archdiocese were invited to be at the heart of the Mass celebration.

The service was led by Reverend Bernard Longley – Archbishop of Birmingham who stated in reference to the Institute “Our friendships are so important”.
