Welcome to the Cathedral Church of Saints Peter & Paul, Clifton.

Upgrading of the heating and lighting in the Cathedral is underway. The Cathedral is open for Masses and Confessions at the weekend, but is closed at all other times (including between Masses). Weekday Masses are now celebrated in the James Room, but note that there is currently no access to the upper car parks. Thank you for your understanding and support during this project.
