Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement inviting Christians around the world to pray between the Feast of the Ascension and Pentecost, for more people to come to know Jesus Christ.

This year, St Mary’s Cathedral is taking part in ’Thy Kingdom Come’ with ten days of prayer and worship events from 10 - 20 May.


Bishop Seamus will join us on Friday 18 May at 7.15pm in the Cathedral for an evening of prayer, open to all denominations, to include Taize chants. Refreshments will follow.

The Lady Chapel is a candle lit prayer space to symbolize the dispelling of darkness and the coming of the Kingdom into our world.

The book of prayer is located there for those who may wish to write intentions for family and friends they hope will come to know God manifest in Jesus Christ.

During the ten days, each Mass begins with a special prayer for the coming of the kingdom
