During the current period of lockdown, places of worship are not permitted to gather people for communal worship.
They are however permitted to offer times for personal prayer. This is a legitimate reason for leaving home.
St Peter’s Cathedral will be open for private prayer at the following times:
Monday to Saturday in the “Day Chapel” (the chapel of the former Cathedral Convent) Midday -1pm.
The Chapel can be accessed from the gate/door to the left of the Pastoral Centre on Balmoral Rd, just up from Cathedral House.
Sunday in St Peter’s Cathedral Midday-1pm with exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.
All prayer will be silent.
In both locations wearing of a face mask, sanitising of hands, filling up the available seating from the front, and personalcontact details will be required. The Cathedral has a maximum capacity of 90. The Day Chapel 18.
Both locations will operate a one way system for the moment of people in and out. The Day Chapel is on a continuous level with the pavement outside, the Cathedral uses a chair lift for access. Regrettably toilets will not be available at these tiimes. A member of the Cathedral clergy will generally be available at these times of prayer. These arrangements are due tobe reviewed on or near December 2nd. Thank you for your cooperation.
