On Saturday 16 December from 10.15 am to 5.15 pm the Cathedral will be holding ‘A Day with Mary’, which will include Mass, Adoration, confessions, devotions and sermons. 

The delightful annual Children's Crib Service will take place at 3.30 pm on Christmas Eve, Sunday 24 December.  If you are a parishioner, please do bring your child dressed as a king, shepherd, or an angel.

Finally, join Archbishop Wilson and the Cathedral for Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve to celebrate the Nativity of the Lord. There are also a number of additional Masses and services on this, and Christmas Day, including a Family Mass.
