The English Cathedral


The cathedral is the focus of the Bishop’s ministry within the diocese and a centre of mission and education. Today cathedrals have become powerhouses for the Church.

They attract large numbers of people who come as seekers, pilgrims and tourists many of whom find the anonymity of a large church initially helpful in exploring their spiritual journey. Here they find counsel, hospitality, patronage of the arts, inspiring architecture, fine music and liturgy, together with opportunities for learning.

The vibrant life of Norwich Cathedral





In 1976, the church of St John the Baptist in Norwich became the cathedral of the new Catholic diocese of East Anglia. The two cathedrals now work together as leading members of the ecumenical partnership in the city.
