The Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity, Down

www.downcathedral.org

Down Cathedral is the Cathedral Church of the Diocese of Down and here the Bishop of the Diocese has his episcopal seat (Cathedra). The Cathedral hosts major festivals and services for the Diocese, the highlight being the annual St Patrick’s Day celebrations on 17th March. The Cathedral is also home to a small congregation who worship here Sunday by Sunday. The Cathedral is open every day for daily prayer and because of its unique situation and historic association with St Patrick it serves as a focal point for Christians of all denominations.

The Cathedral Church of the Christ the Redeemer, Dromore

There is evidence of the Lagan-side site being in active use for the purpose of Christian worship since 510AD when St Colman (a disciple of Patrick) founded a place of prayer here. The church was built, destroyed and rebuilt in the 16th and 17th centuries and was seat to renowned bishops Thomas Percy and Jeremy Taylor in their time.
