Provost’s Welcome

Welcome to the website of St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral, the Mother Church of the Diocese of Edinburgh, and the only Cathedral in Scotland to maintain the tradition of daily Choral worship. With its three spires dominating Edinburgh’s western skyline, St Mary’s is Scotland’s largest Cathedral, and a renowned masterpiece of Victorian Gothic architecture. Designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott, the Cathedral was consecrated in 1879, and has been open daily for public and private prayer ever since. Congratulations to the Revd Dr Paul Foster who has been promoted to Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at Edinburgh University. Follow the links below for details of  services and music and to read our magazine. The Cathedral Choir currently has some vacancies for alto, tenor, and bass lay clerks and choral scholars.
