St Paul's welcomes news of Royal birth

The Dean, Chapter and entire community of St Paul's Cathedral are overjoyed at the news of today's Royal birth.

The Dean of St Paul's, the Very Reverend David Ison, said: "All of us at St Paul's are delighted to hear the good news of the safe arrival of a son for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Our prayers and good wishes are with them as they begin the amazing and challenging journey of parenthood together with their new baby."

The Chapter of St Paul's have issued the following Prayer of Thanksgiving:
 
Heavenly Father,
whose Son Jesus Christ
was born of Mary your handmaiden,
we give you glad and joyful thanks
for the safe delivery of a Prince;
send down your blessing upon him,
and surround with your love
William and Catherine,
Duke and Duchess of Cambridge,
that faith and hope and gentleness
may strengthen them all the days of their lives;
for the sake of the same Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace,
Amen.

 
On Saturday, 27 July, the Cathedral bells will ring a full four-hour peal to celebrate the birth, beginning at midday.
