Welcome to the Saint Mary’s Cathedral Basilica website! Saint Mary’s has been the home to a Catholic community for over two hundred years. It has enjoyed the gifts of many generous generations who have built the community as a Catholic witness to the gospel in the heart of the city.

As the mother church of the Archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth and the Cathedral seat of Archbishop Mancini, Saint Mary’s is the site of many events for the whole Archdiocese in addition to providing worship for its own membership.

At present we offer a variety of services from catechetical formation to a thriving senior’s ministry, with outreach to the people of the street and those in seniors homes.
