LENT, HOLY WEEK and EASTER

Ash Wednesday, the day that begins the holy season of Lent (the 40 days and 6 Sundays that lead to Easter) falls this year on 14th February otherwise known as St Valentine’s Day.  At the Cathedral we offer the ancient liturgy of the Imposition of Ashes three times on that day.

8.00am  Said Eucharist with Imposition of Ashes
1.10pm   Sung Eucharist with homily and Imposition of Ashes
7.30pm  Sung Eucharist with homily and Imposition of Ashes

Throughout Lent, there is also a Lent course running.  This year, it is entitled Finding a Voice and is based on the film, The King’s Speech, concerning George VI’s struggle with a speech impediment to find his voice.  The course asks how we, as Christians, rediscover our voice in an ever increasingly secular environment.  There are five sessions with each session being offered at two different times each week as follows:

Wednesday 21st February @7.00pm (Eucharist in the Cathedral at 6.15pm)
Thursday 22nd February @ 11.30am (Eucharist in the Cathedral at 1.10pm)

Wednesday 28th February @ 7.00pm (Eucharist in the Cathedral at 6.15pm)
Thursday 1st March @ 11.30am (Eucharist in the Cathedral at 1.10pm)

Wednesday 7th March @ 7.00pm (Eucharist in the Cathedral at 6.15pm)

Welcome to St Paul’s Cathedral, Dundee!  Here, you will find a living and lively faith community right in the heart of Dundee’s vibrant city centre.  We are a diverse group of people ranging from those who have been born and bred in Dundee to people from all over the world who come to Dundee for work or study.

Designed by the famous Victorian architect, Sir George Gilbert Scott, our beautiful building with its soaring spire can be seen all over the city and dominates the skyline. As Cathedral, St Paul’s is the mother church of the Diocese of Brechin in the Scottish Episcopal Church, the Scottish province of the world-wide Anglican Communion and is the seat of the Bishop of Brechin, but primarily it is the spiritual home to the rich variety of different people that make up the Cathedral congregation.

We extend a warm welcome to all, whether you are looking for a spiritual home in Dundee or just passing through.  People of all faiths and none are very welcome to visit the Cathedral at any time: to join us for a service, to light a candle, or simply enjoy the building and its atmosphere.

We work hard at being welcoming and inclusive of all, and constantly look for ways to creatively show the love of God in our city and beyond. Do come and join in one of our services or other activities if you are living or visiting our city – we would love to meet you – wherever you are on your own faith journey.
