Parish Links with their Cathedral

Chichester Cathedral is the Mother Church of the Diocese of Chichester.  (Please click here if you would like to visit the Diocese of Chichester website.)

The Chichester Diocese is very long, with the Cathedral under 10 miles from the western boundary with the Portsmouth Diocese and nearly 100 miles from the eastern boundary with the Canterbury Diocese.  This makes it difficult to keep in contact with the 389 parishes within the diocese, so each parish has a Cathedral Link who is interested in their Mother Church and forms a link between their parish and the Cathedral.

In the Diocesan Cycle of Intercessions each parish is prayed for by the whole Diocese once a year and the parish is invited to tea at the Cathedral and to attend the services on that day.

The Links are also honorary Friends of the Cathedral, and receive the Cathedral Newsletter and Journal giving them all the Cathedral news and information about events.  The Cathedral also helps the Links to publicise their parish events and holds Parish Links Open Days and an annual special Evensong in celebration of the Cathedral/Parish links Network.
