DAILY PRAYER READERS

Daily Prayer is said in the Chapel of Unity each day at 1.00 pm Monday - Saturday.
(On Wednesdays and Saints’ Days there is a celebration of the Eucharist and on Fridays a service of healing is held).

The Daily Prayer service is conducted by a lay person and includes Bible readings and a psalm portion. Prayers are said for local and international concerns. The members of the Daily Prayer team are drawn from a variety of Christian traditions. The commitment, after basic initial training, is about one service in every 6-8 weeks. If you would like to discuss serving on the Daily Prayer team, please contact the Dean on 9032 8332 (office) or dean@belfastcathedral.org

TAPESTRY GUILD

The Tapestry Guild’s work over the past century is evident in every part of the Cathedral. There are over 1,200 prayer kneelers (hassocks). Every seat or chair used by an office holder also has a cushion with its own distinct design - usually in the form of a coat of arms. These include the stalls of the bishops, the Dean, the Cathedral chapter, the pew used by the Mayor of Belfast and the chairs at the pulpit. Each kneeler and cushion represents skills of design and cross-stitch, together with dedication and devotion. Much more detail on the kneelers and the ladies who produced this outstandingly detailed and unique needlework can be found here
