The Cathedral Church of St Mary & St Boniface is the Mother Church of the Catholic Diocese of Plymouth, established in 1850. The Cathedral itself was built in 1858 at the same time as a certain Bernadette Soubirious was receiving visions of Our Lady in the French town of Lourdes! The Marian connection has always been very important to us at the Cathedral and the Diocese.
In the Cathedral you will be able to pray, celebrate the sacraments, listen to the word of God proclaimed and preached, and come to know and understand more deeply the faith which we profess in word and deed.
May your visit here be faithful in every sense.
May God bless you all,
Rt Rev Mark O'Toole, Bishop of Plymouth
