Archbishop Heenan on 'Today' THE architect who will design the new Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the

King has been chosen.

An announcement from Liverpool on Wednesday stated that Archbishop Heenan together with Sir Basil Spence, A.R.A., F.R.I.B.A., and Mr. David Stokes, F.R.I.B.A., had chosen a design from among the several hundreds submitted.

The name was not to be announced until Thursday afternoon, after the Catholic papers had gone to Press. The National Press and News agencies, BBC and ATV sound and TV representatives were expected to be present at the Wimbledon Convent (where the judging has been done) for the announcement of the name.

It was announced on Wednesday evening, as we went to Press, that Archbishop Heenan would be interviewed in the BBC's programme "To-Day" at 7.15 a.m. and 8.15 a.m. today, Friday. (Home Service)

A full report with pictures will appear in the CATHOLIC HERALD next week.
