Your Safety

Please be aware that there is no obligation on anyone to attend Services/Masses over Easter. Stewards will be present at all Masses on Easter Sunday and the Cathedral will be sanitised between each of the Masses. People are encouraged to come early to Mass as there are a limited number of seats in the Cathedral and doors will have to be closed when all seats have been taken. People may choose not to attend Mass on Easter Sunday but at some other point during easter Week or during the Easter Season. People are always welcome to join with us virtually for Services/Masses via parish webcam!
