About the Location:

The Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King is Liverpool's Roman Catholic Cathedral sited at the other end of Hope Street under a mile from the Anglican Cathedral. The term "Metropolitan" indicates a wider remit than just Liverpool or indeed Merseyside; this building is the seat of the Archbishop of Liverpool who is the spiritual leader of all the faithful of the Northern Province of the Catholic Church in England comprising seven dioceses in all.
In a worldwide architecture competition, Sir Frederick Gibberd's (1908-1984) design was chosen, and building began in October 1962.
