Welcome to St Marie’s Cathedral

Located in the heart of Sheffield’s city centre, St Marie’s Cathedral is a hidden gem ready to be discovered.

Being the mother church of the Diocese of Hallam, St Marie’s is an oasis of calm and spirituality. Also, the combination of its fascinating history, recently restored architecture and exquisite features -some of which were designed by the world-famous architect, Augustus Pugin- make it perfect for an unforgettable and inspiring visit.

St Marie’s Cathedral has been recently awarded a Heritage Lottery Funded (HLF) grant to conserve its heritage and share its stories and treasures with everyone who lives in, works in and visits Sheffield. As a result, St Marie’s is offering an exciting programme of free activities and events such as guided tours, exhibitions, family workshops, organ and bell ringing demonstrations, musical events, school sessions, etc.

Beautiful interior.

Worth visiting to experience its incredible peace and spiritual atmosphere.

This church is amazing. It was built as a parish church in the 1850's, but looks like it was always meant to be a cathedral. The tracery east window is a great example of Victorian stained-glass. It is light, open and airy.

A Catholic cathedral of outstanding beauty and prayerfulness.

It is one the most beautiful churches I have ever seen.

A heritage jewel of Sheffield.

Lovely cathedral, nice to visit.

We have made a special trip to Sheffield specifically to visit this beautiful cathedral and we have not been disappointed. Truly one of the most, if not the most, lovely Catholic cathedrals we've visited.
