WELCOME

The Cathedral Parish is a Catholic faith community centred on Bathurst NSW, Australia.  It embraces people in the city of Bathurst and surrounding countryside and the towns and villages from Sofala and Wattle Flat to the north to Rockley and Burraga to the south.

The members of the community provide, or are involved in, many different endeavours in striving to live out the Good News of the Reign of God’s Love within our local community.  The Word of God and our personal and communal prayer nurtures our spirituality that is then activated in our service of others in health and aged care, education, care of those in need and of the environment that sustains us, and the many diverse ways that ‘love of neighbour’ is lived out by members of the community.
