Welcome to Holy Rosary Cathedral
The Cathedral is a house of prayer and worship.
At its heart is the Blessed Sacrament which is the presence of God among us.
We warmly invite all who are seeking the love and peace of Jesus Christ in their lives to be part of our community.
Holy Mass Live Stream
Monday to Saturday 7:15am, 12:10pm, & 5:10pm
Sunday 8:00am, 11:00am, 6:30pm (spanish) & 8:00pm
Temporary closure of the Cathedral Church and Suspension of Public Celebration of Mass
1) The decision has been made to suspend all public celebration of Mass at Holy Rosary Cathedral as of Friday, March 20 at 6 PM and we regret that the Cathedral will remain closed until further notice.
After consultation with health professionals we arrived at the conclusion that proper cleaning and sanitation is not possible at this time. This decision has been made with a heavy heart; however, it is important for us to comply with the directives of the public health authorities about containing the spread of Covid-19.
2) Mass from Holy Rosary Cathedral will be streamed live on the internet each day. The live-stream times are: 7:15 AM, 12:10 PM and 5:10 PM on weekdays and 8 AM, 11 AM, 6:30 PM (Spanish) and 8 PM on Sundays. Eventually we will have other video resources such as Stations of the Cross available for download.
3) We will endeavour to make Confessions available on weekdays (Monday to Saturday inclusive) from 12 noon to 1 PM and 3 PM to 4 PM. Confessional is located at the tent outside of the East doors of the Cathedral in the lane. When lining up please keep appropriate social distancing.
Thank you for your understanding and prayers.
Cathedral Office – Temporary Closure
In order to assist local public health efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19 the Cathedral office will be closed until further notice. We will continue to follow direction from all levels of government and the Archdiocese of Vancouver and we will re-open when it is safe to so.
We regret the inconvenience this may cause. If you have an urgent matter, please contact the Cathedral office: 604-682-6774 ext.0 and leave a message or send an email.
Prayer and Online Giving
Since the Sunday celebration of the Eucharist is the very heart of our Catholic life, the inability to gather for this worship is a cause of great suffering. Let us accept this as our civic duty at this time, and offer this moment in sacrifice to God for the sake of all who are ill from the COVID-19 virus and health care professionals.

Stations of the Cross
At the Cathedral during Lent we normally pray the Way of the Cross or Stations of the Cross every Wednesday and Friday. This Lenten season we cannot pray them as a community, but we invite you to pray them with us with the video we have prepared. Please click here for the video and for more information. Please click here for a online booklet with this devotion.

Welcome to this cathedral, which is your cathedral, dedicated to Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, principal patron of the Archdiocese of Vancouver.
The church’s doors are open every day and throughout the day, and I invite you to make this sacred place your church in the heart of downtown Vancouver.
The cathedral offers something to every visitor, Catholic or non-Catholic. Explore its French gothic architecture, view its magnificent stained glass windows, and enjoy the exquisite organ music through which we praise God. This is where you can encounter our Lord in the sacraments, with Mass offered several times a day at convenient times, and confession available before and during weekday Masses.
In this busy city, I pray that our cathedral can be an oasis that sustains and restores you. Amid the hectic pace of life, may it serve as a sanctuary where you can drop in, pray, and meditate.
We are blessed to have this beautiful church, which for 117 years has stood as a symbol of our Catholic faith, a house of God in the heart of this beautiful and vibrant city. I invite you to come and make it your home as well.
+ Archbishop Miller
