Pastor’s Welcome

Dear Friends,

Welcome to the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart Parish! For over a century, the Cathedral has provided a singular environment for Sunday worship, varied liturgical events, diocesan celebrations, and community events. The people of the Cathedral Parish Community represent a wide variety of age groups, backgrounds, experiences and occupations. Unlike many suburban parishes, our parishioners choose to travel to the Cathedral from all areas of the city of Richmond and local counties to our inner city location.

Given all these singular gifts, we realize that a newcomer can still feel isolated in the midst of new and unknown faces, ministries and opportunities. We hope to minimize such isolation and invite you to learn more about the Cathedral Parish so that you and your household may experience our rich opportunities for worship, community, and ministry. The Cathedral is truly a place where all are counted as parishioners.

Monsignor Patrick Golden, Rector
