Click on a date/time to register. Masses marked with * will also be livestreamed; scroll down for links. Note that due to increased demand, we have resumed the Sunday 5:30pm Mass.

We have put many precautions in place to make sure that the celebration of Mass during Covid-19 is both safe and comfortable. This is not business as usual! The following are important instructions for those who wish to take part. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

  • Registration is required, and registered persons will be checked in as they arrive.
  • Masks/face coverings must be worn throughout the Mass except when receiving Holy Communion. Your mask needs to cover both your nose and your mouth at all times.
  • On arriving at the Cathedral, you will be greeted by staff who will check you in and show you your place for the Mass.
  • You will NOT be able to choose your own place to sit, nor will you be able to move about the Cathedral once you have been seated. Household groups will be seated together.

St. Joseph, pray for us
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted
his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy,
and courage,
and defend us from every evil. Amen.
- Pope Francis, Patris Corde
Joseph most just, pray for us.
Joseph most strong, pray for us.
Joseph most faithful, pray for us.
