Care for the Cathedral Community

hands clasping on pink backgroundIt is very difficult to look after each other from a distance but we are determined that nobody within the Cathedral congregations, Precincts or wider community should feel forgotten or be in need as we sit out these difficult times. The clergy and pastoral teams will be prioritising staying in touch by telephone, online and if appropriate in person. We need your help to do this.

We would like to establish and maintain three lists:

  1. Those who become ill

  2.  Those who have to self-isolate because of a family member’s illness

  3. Those who have to stay at home because of age or medical vulnerability.

Contact us

If you, or somebody you know, comes into any of the categories above, please let us know via the Cathedral office on 01733 355315 or by email in the first instance to pastoralcare@peterborough-cathedral.org.uk.

Any information given will be dealt with in accordance with strict GDPR protocols.

In addition we shall be praying both generally and by name for those requesting prayer. Please do let us know if you or anyone specifically requires prayer.

Let’s look after each other as well as we can.
