Sunday Services 12 September

Belfast Cathedral - Sunday Services 12 September

You are welcome to join us in person or online at 11.00am on Sunday 12th September 2021, which is the Fifteenth Sunday after Trinity. The service will be Choral Eucharist, with the Dean as preacher and the Dean's Vicar as celebrant.

The musical setting for the Eucharist is the Mass for four voices  by William Byrd and the anthem is Adoramus te, Christe  by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina.

Those attending this service are reminded that face coverings must be worn when entering, exiting and moving around within the building. We request that they also be worn during the service itself, but certainly during the parts of the service where there is congregational singing.

Social distancing requirements should be observed during and after the service. Holy Communion will be in one kind only.

Following the summer break the service will also be livestreamed through the cathedral Facebook page:
