“The only Cathedral in Plymouth.”

Reviewed 2 July 2011

Built in the late 1850s as the mother church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Plymouth and the seat of he only Bishop of Plymouth. This is a simple limestone structure with a narrow spire and occupies the higher ground in northern Stonehouse amidst some elegant and some run down early Victorian terraces. The interior was last repressed in the mid 1990s to fit with he most recent evolution and concept of ritual and 'to capture the understanding of the essence of the church as a pilgrim people'. Couldn't quite work that one out but part of it seems to involve moving the centre or focus of activity from the trad alter position at the east end to an arrangement in the centre of what was the main aisle with the faithful sat all round. An interesting building with some more modern ancillary attachments. If you are a catholic, local or visitor or have any reason to go to a service or just look in, it is worth a nose around.
