‘A moving gesture’: Anglicans donate collection money to Catholic cathedral after robbery

From The Catholic Herald

Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral has shown solidarity with Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, by donating money from its collection boxes to its Catholic neighbor following a break-in on October 6. Representatives from the Catholic cathedral said they were “overwhelmed” by the act of generosity after a significant amount of money had been stolen during the robbery. A statement on the Metropolitan Cathedral’s Facebook page said: “We were overwhelmed this week to receive a very special donation from our close neighbours and friends Liverpool Cathedral. In response to our break-in, we were handed a cheque, which came from their own visitor donations. A moving gesture of friendship and solidarity.” The break-in took place in the early hours of the morning on October 6. Cash was stolen from the Cathedral’s collection boxes and glass images were smashed beyond repair. The thieves are yet to be identified.
