Message from The Dean of Ely (Updated February 2021)

Joyfully proclaiming the love of God in Worship, Outreach, Welcome and Care

Dear Friends,

Now we are in the season of Lent, and in light of the fact that we have careful Covid secure procedures in place, it is possible for the Cathedral to be open at certain times. From 1 March, Morning Prayer will take place at 7.30am, followed by Holy Communion at 8.00am, Monday - Saturday. These services will be open to all. Entry to the Cathedral will be by the South door only, and please sign in if you attend.

In addition the Cathedral will be open for Private Prayer and Silent Reflection between 10.00am and 12noon, Monday to Friday. We very much wish to resume public Sunday, and weekday evening, worship as soon as we can. We feel it is important to wait until it is safe and viable to do so.

We will continue to offer worship remotely by live streaming services. Details and information on how to access services online is available on our Worship pages on this website. You can also keep in touch with us and keep up to date with our activities via our social media channels.

We appreciate that for many, this extended and more severe period of lockdown, must be very challenging and disheartening. It is difficult not to be able to spend time with friends and family, or simply being able to go about your daily routine. If you, or anyone you know, needs any help or support please do get in touch via email on gro/lardehtacyle//troppus

In the meantime we will continue to hope and pray for a more peaceful and settled year ahead.

With my prayers and best wishes,


The Very Revd Mark Bonney Silver Award
