Cathedral Isle Of Man

Community, Worship, Culture

Cathedral Isle of Man was consecrated as a Cathedral in 1980.  It serves as the Cathedral for the Church of England diocese of Sodor and Man, which covers the Isle of Man.  As an Anglican Cathedral it is a place of worship, but its role extends well beyond the church community, as it welcomes people of all faiths and none across the Island to use the facilities for creative arts and a variety of events as well as religious occasions.

Cathedral Isle of Man has two functions, serving as the Parish Church of German, including the city of Peel,and as the Cathedral serving the Isle of Man. It is one of five churches in the Parish of the West Coast, which serves communities between Dalby and Kirk Michael, and the coast to St John’s.

The Cathedral is also part of the Western Mission Partnership, comprising eight churches, which are introduced in this brochure.

Cathedral Logo

The Cathedral logo will mean many different things to different people.  However, it was designed to incorporate our artistic and religious heritage, with influence from renowned Manx artist Archibald Knox.  The Dean, the Very Reverend Nigel Godfrey explains:

“We wanted a symbol that was modern-looking to reflect the exciting changes that are underway at the Cathedral.  It is also intended to incorporate our artistic and religious heritage – hence the references to Knox and the Bishop’s crozier. The fish has a strong Christian tradition – as well as being synonymous with the fishing port of Peel.  Finally, we felt the need to incorporate movement in the same way as the Three Legs of Man symbol is a dynamic design.  After all, the Cathedral is unique and belongs to the whole island and is the Mother Church of the Diocese of Sodor and Man.”
