Welcome to Blackburn Cathedral

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.
