From MAGA - the Cornish Language Partnership
Cornish in the Cathedral The Bishop’s Group for Services in Cornish and Truro Cathedral are beginning a new and exciting venture in the coming months.
For the first time the Eucharist will be celebrated in Cornish in the Cathedral. The Cathedral keep the feasts of some Cornish saints already, and now by their kind permission we will celebrate them in Cornish, in the heart of the church in Cornwall.
The first will be the Feast of St Samson on Monday 28th July at 1 pm, a said Eucharist in St Mary’s Aisle; and second will be the Feast of St German on Wednesday 1st October at 5.30 pm, a solemn Eucharist sung by the Cathedral Choir. The sung setting will be in Latin, and the spoken words in Cornish: so there will be not a word of English, neither said nor sung.
In the past services in Cornish were held in the Cathedral, but have not been so for some years, and it’s very good that they are to begin again. It’s another small step in the growth of our language and culture; so, come and support our language, our identity and our heritage on those two days, and show that our language is very much alive and very important to us. The service book will be in both Cornish and English – therefore, whether you speak Cornish or not, there is no excuse for you!
