As Dean of Belfast let me welcome you to the Belfast Cathedral website. We hope that as you discover here the many aspects of daily life in this special place, you will also decide to come and visit our beautiful Cathedral. Pass through our doors to worship with us or to visit as a tourist; to meet others at a special service of celebration or commemoration; or to step inside to find peace or join in prayer as a pilgrim, a friend, or a neighbour.
Dean Stephen Forde
We invite you to come and visit the Cathedral in person. It is undoubtedly one of Belfast’s greatest and most magnificent buildings in terms of size, architecture, mosaics, stone carving, textiles and history.
St Cecilia, Patron Saint of Music, will be honoured in the Cathedral on Wednesday November 21 when we join with Corrymeela to present CANTATE! – a concert of hope and celebration.
At this time of remembrance, many stories emerge about the boys who stepped up to serve during the Great War, including those belonging to the Belfast Cathedral Company of the Church Lads’ Brigade (CLB).
They came together in Belfast Cathedral, as they did around the country, around Europe, and around the world, to remember those who died for peace and freedom 100 years to the day since the Armistice of World War One.
