St. Joseph Cathedral

Diocese of Manchester


St. Joseph Cathedral is the Mother Church of the Diocese of Manchester. It is the site of the ordinations of deacons, priests, and bishops, and major celebrations such as the Chrism Mass, celebrations of the Jubilees of religious ministering in the diocese, the Rite of Election and the Red Mass.

St. Joseph Cathedral was built as a parish church in 1869, some fifteen years before the Diocese of Manchester was established. It was consecrated as the cathedral in 1894, ten years after the diocese’s founding. You can learn more about our cathedral by visiting the Cathedral Parish’s website:
