Welcome to Dromore Cathedral

Dromore Cathedral has been at the heart of Dromore for centuries. We serve the community of Dromore by bringing Christ’s compassion, love and hope of salvation to people of all ages.

Just as relevant as ever, we believe Christ and his radical teaching to be the only solution to the problems of our country, town and selves. We invite you to join us on our journey as we discover how to be everything he called us to be.

Ordination of Rev Elaine Pentland and Rev Andrew Orr

August 22nd, 2021|0 Comments

Very sincere congratulations to the Rev Elaine Pentland, and the Rev Andrew Orr on the occasion of their ordination to the order of deacon on Sunday 22nd August in our Cathedral. Elaine will serve as a deacon in Willowfield Parish and Andrew will serve his year as deacon in St John’s Parish, Orangefield.

The last service of ordination in our Cathedral was that of Rev Gary McMurray back in 2008, so it was wonderful to be able to host this very special service once more, at the request of our Bishop, the Rt Rev David McClay. We look forward to our Cathedral be asked to host similar significant Diocesan services in the years to come.

Installation of Canon Mark Harvey

Friday 18th June was a very special day for Canon Mark Harvey and his family as he was installed as Prebendary of Dromara. But it was also a significant occasion for the people of Shankill Parish as their Rector was acknowledged and affirmed in his ministry through his appointment to the Cathedral Chapter.

We have been richly blessed following the upgrade of our AV system, specifically with the introduction of 3 cameras which have enabled us to have much better visibility of people and activities which would have been previously enjoyed by those sitting in very close proximity only.

One great example of the benefits which the cameras have brought was very evident on the occasion of the ordination of deacons on Sunday 22nd August. The moment of ordination was projected onto our screens, both in church and at home, in order that all of us could in a sense feel more involved than would have been previously possible.

However, with each blessing comes something of a challenge. In projecting images onto our screens, an inevitable and unintended consequence of this is that those sitting on the periphery of the object of focus will also be projected onto our screens. Please be aware that this may happen on occasions and advise stewards if you would prefer to sit "out of camera” in a manner of speaking. Please understand that this may not be possible if there are no other seats available at that particular time.
