A Welcome in the heart of the City

‘Go into all the world …’
by being in the heart of the city.

* No air fares * No immunisations *No passports * No visas required

Saint David’s Cathedral is committed to

Proclaiming Jesus as Lord in the heart of Hobart –

to build a community of living faith, profound hope and practical love.

The Cathedral daily receives and welcomes 40 to 100 visitors, tourists and those seeking sanctuary. With more cruise ships arriving, we are welcoming people from all over the world. All are welcome to experience the Cathedral’s beauty and tranquillity. Our Cathedral’s architecture, windows and decorations all proclaim the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.

There is a wonderful opportunity for people to welcome those who come into the Cathedral to Hobart and to use the building to speak of our welcoming God. We have a dedicated team of such people, but we’re looking for committed Christians from any denomination to join us in this wonderful ministry

You can be a Cathedral Welcomer once a week, once a fortnight or once a month – you could even do a whole week. Training is provided and there are always two Welcomers rostered on together.

For more information and requirements for authorisation, you are welcome to contact Raelene Weissel at rae.weissel@gmail.com or the Cathedral Office on 6234 4900.

Reach the world for Christ …
…and be home in time for dinner!
