GIRL GUIDES, BOY SCOUTS AND BROWNIES.
SPECIAL SERVICES AT THE CATHEDRAL.
On Sunday, All Saints' Day, the Cathedral authorities welcomed the Girl Guides, Boy Scouts and Brownies to the 11 o'clock service. There was an excellent attendance, and the service was most inspiring and helpful.
The choir and clergy met the visitors at the West Door, where a procession was arranged. After the cross bearer came the Cathedral choir, followed by the clergy, the Bishop, the Guide and Scout colour bearers, and members of the various troops and packs. The Processional hymn was "Lo Round the throne, a Glorious Band." The colour bearers advanced to the Sanctuary steps, where His Lordship the Bishop received the colours which were placed in Sanctuary. The Scout Commissioner, the Rev. G.T.Waldegrave, preached a very interesting sermon on Saints and Service, and recounted the story of St. Christopher as an example of Christian fortitude and patience. The service was conducted by the Chaplain; special prayers were said for the Scouts and Guides. The senior officers present were the following: Colonel Robertson, Assistant Commissioner; District Scout Master White; Guide captains Miss Holyoak, Miss Hollingsworth, Miss Shaw, Miss S.Shaw, and Miss Denton.
The choir sang very effectively an All Saints Anthem. At the conclusion of the service the Episcopal Blessing was given after which, the banners having been returned, the choir and colour bearers with the clergy left the Cathedral by the West Door.
