The  Cathedral is currently closed during the week due to the total replacement of the radiators and some work to the pipes. Consequently there will be no weekday Masses or Confessions during this period and  there is no access into the Cathedral. 
We have been advised that the Cathedral should be closed during the process because of the scale of the work and associated Health and Safety factors. We realise that this may cause some inconvenience but it is unavoidable as this work must be completed before the winter.  Your understanding and cooperation is   appreciated and  needless to say we offer our sincere apologies. 
The Cathedral will be open as normal on Saturday and Sunday, the Cloister Café and Cathedral book shop are both open as normal, please give them your usual support. 

Bishop Seamus celebrated a Mass of Thanksgiving in the Cathedral for the Canonisation of Archbishop Oscar Romero last Saturday.

Memorial Candles

The tradition of lighting candles on the sanctuary steps in memory of loved ones will again take place on the feast of  The Holy Souls, Friday 2nd November .
