Our Cathedral

The Cathedral is the Mother Church of the Catholic community in the Diocese of Middlesbrough and seat of Bishop Terence Patrick Drainey. It is both a holy place of worship and a solace of prayer. Saint Mary’s is home to a community of people who seek to make the it a place of welcome, beauty and holiness.

We hope you will be inspired to visit Saint Mary’s Cathedral and we look forward to welcoming you.

The main church is normally open during weekdays until about 10.30am, except Monday and Thursday when evening Mass is held.  Should you wish to visit after this time please contact us here and we will endeavour to ensure the Cathedral can be open for your visit.
