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

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.
