“The Cathedral is widely recognised locally,

nationally and international for its active promotion

of ecumenical and bridge-building activities

and this role is reflected in the regard in which

the building is held as a religious venue which is acceptable

to all sections of the community.”

PASTORAL  VISITING

For quite some time, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Canon John Merrick and I have been unable to visit you in your home, in hospital, nursing home or hospice.

If you would like us to visit you – adhering to the COVID-19 protocols – please let us know and we will be more than happy to make that pastoral visit.

The Dean, The Very Reverend Raymond Stewart, made this announcement on Sunday 17th October 2021.

I wish to say something about wearing face coverings in church.

It is a legal requirement to wear a face covering when entering and exiting a church building.

It is strongly advised to wear a face covering when singing.

The legal requirement to wear a face covering during an act of worship has been removed but The House of Bishops of The Church of Ireland strongly advises that this practice should continue.

We recognise, and appreciate, that some people are – for medical reasons – exempted from wearing a face covering. To such people – members of this Cathedral Church – I would want to assure you that you will always be welcome in Saint Columb’s Cathedral and we would love to see you return to worship when you feel able to do so.

All of us need to continue to be conscious of the fact that the Coronavirus pandemic is still with us and we all need to play our part to ensure our own safety and the safety of those around us by adhering to the regulations and guidelines.

For quite some time, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Canon John Merrick and I have been unable to visit you in your home, in hospital, nursing home or hospice. If you would like us to visit you – adhering to the COVID-19 protocols – please let us know and we will be more than happy to make that pastoral call.
