the Cathedral


Welcome to your Cathedral!

On behalf of our resident clergy and staff, I welcome you to the website of the Cathedral of Saint Peter!


The Cathedral has been serving its parishioners and the Diocese of Scranton for over 160 years. It’s mission is largely unchanged. Each year, in addition to our parishioners, we welcome thousands of friends and visitors through our doors and strive to make them feel welcome and meet their spiritual needs.  I believe the beauty of our church gives witness to the beauty, the goodness, and the faith of the people who have attended and worshipped as a part of our cathedral for so many years.


Whether you’re a Cathedral regular or this is your first visit, we’re excited to welcome you to discover something new. It is our prayer that you feel welcome here and can see a piece of yourself in this house of prayer for all people.

Everything about this Cathedral invites us to reflect on something greater than ourselves: our story as a diocese, our call to service, and our walk with our Creator.

We are on a journey in life seeking to walk with Christ and I invite you to come along and walk with us on the journey.


May God bless you always!
