Friends of Saint Patrick’s Cathedral


Members of the Society of the Friends of Saint Patrick’s Cathedral support the life, mission and ministry of the Cathedral. They come from all walks of life and all denominations, but are united by their commitment to Saint Patrick’s Cathedral.  Each Friend’s name is inscribed in the Friends’ Roll, kept on display in the Cathedral. Each week a page of the roll is turned. The activities of the Friends of Saint Patrick’s Cathedral include a Festival Service and a Garden Party in June, visits to places of interest and other fundraising events.
