About

There are some changes to ensure the safety of all visitors. If you are planning to attend, please read their fact sheet here.

In addition, the Cathedral is open seven days a week for private prayer and reflection. The Cathedral priests will be present as much as possible, to meet with visitors and hear confession. This will take place within the main Cathedral space, rather than in the Confessional.

No trip to Liverpool is complete without a visit to the awe-inspiring Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King. This dramatic icon of faith, architecture and human endeavour is spectacular in both scale and design.

Explore the Cathedral's majestic interior which includes modern works of art and stunning design features, such as its striking Lantern Tower - the world’s largest area of coloured glass. Along with daily Masses and Services, the Cathedral runs a diverse programme of wonderful music concerts, exhibitions and special events. 

Of special note is the magnificent Lutyens Crypt and Treasury, situated within the Cathedral. An architectural gem in its own right, the Crypt is one of the most significant works in this country of the leading British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens. Part of Lutyens' early 20th century Cathedral design, the Crypt offers a fascinating glimpse of what might have been, had it been completed. Don’t miss a chance to explore this remarkable space.​​​​​
