Blackburn Cathedral is one of England's newest Cathedrals, yet it is one of the country's oldest places of Christian worship. For many centuries, this has been the Parish Church of Blackburn dedicated to St. Mary the Virgin.
It continues as a place of prayer and worship and is at the centre of the Diocese which takes in almost the whole of Lancashire.
We welcome all to the Cathedral whether it is for worship, private prayer, guided tours, to enjoy the splendour of the building, at an event or concert, to enjoy refreshments in the café, visiting the gift shop or simply to shelter from the rain and enjoy the peace that the Cathedral provides.
The Very Reverend Peter Howell-Jones - Dean of Blackburn
