The Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul in Providence, Rhode Island
The Mother Church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence
Announces a major new website initiative!
Please visit us by going to: http://www.providencecathedral.org
Bishop Thomas J. Tobin, Auxiliary Bishop Robert C. Evans, and Cathedral Rector Monsignor Anthony Mancini welcome you to this major new initiative on behalf of the Cathedral. Although the present Cathedral traces its consecration back to 1889, the original Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul traces its history back to 1832. At that time, Rev. John Corry was the priest in charge of the missionary territory incorporating the city of Providence, Rhode Island. From those humble beginnings, the Cathedral now serves many Roman Catholic communities in southern New England. The Diocese of Providence was erected by Pope Pius IX on February 17, 1872. The Diocese of Providence is a shining example of our Lord Jesus Christ's instruction to the Apostles to "'Go out to the whole world; proclaim the gospel to all creation" (Mark 16:15).
The Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul website is your place to learn about and explore the Cathedral’s rich history since 1889, as well as present Cathedral events, Mass times, and give you access to the weekly Bulletin. The Cathedral's website is also your link to the universal Roman Catholic world, including Catholic news and resources from not only the Diocese of Providence, but from around the world in the age of Pope Francis. The Cathedral’s website is also a portal to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence.
For over 125 years the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul has served the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence, Rhode Island as the Mother Church and seat of the Bishop of Providence.
The new Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul website is the one place you can visit not only to learn about and have a virtual tour of the Cathedral, but also access information about the Roman Catholic Church, and how you can become more involved, or learn about our ancient religion and its traditions. Welcome to the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul!
