We are still a worshipping community, despite not being able to physically meet and pray together. In these increasingly uncertain times, we recognise that now more than ever, people are looking for ways to engage with Cathedral worship. 

You are not Alone

The Church is a family. We pray for each other and care for each other. In the Church’s community there is no ‘distancing’ or ‘isolation’. We are the Church, not the building. Whilst the Cathedral may be closed, we are still a worshipping community, united by prayer in the Spirit, wherever we are.

"At the Cathedral we ask you to pray with us, even if for the time being you may not be physically able to join us. God bless you and keep you safe”. - The Very Rev'd Dr Jeffrey John, Dean of St Albans

We hope that you will join us in spiritual communion with us, wherever you are, however you can.

Prayer information

Your Prayer Requests

The Cathedral clergy continue to pray daily. If there is something on your mind that you would particularly like them to include in their prayers, click the Prayer Requests* button below. Please do include your name if you would like to be prayed for personally.

Prayer Requests

All prayer requests will remain completely confidential.


St Albans Cathedral is a place of sanctuary for those who are going through difficult times. If you visit the Cathedral there are often Day Chaplains on duty who will be more than willing to listen to you and to pray with you if you would like. At other times it is possible to arrange an appointment to see a member of the Cathedral clergy.

A number of funeral and memorial services take place at the Cathedral every year; usually these are for members of the congregation and those who live in the parish. If you have a question about arranging a funeral or memorial service at the Cathedral please talk to the Parish Administrator or your local funeral director.
