Roman Catholic: St. Theresa’s Cathedral and Rectory

Home » Attractions » Faith » Roman Catholic: St. Theresa’s Cathedral and Rectory

St. Theresa’s Church ( became St. Theresa’s Cathedral upon the establishment of the Diocese) was opened in 1932 to replace St. Edward’s Church, the first Catholic Church in Bermuda, which had opened in 1859. St. Edward’s had become too small to hold the increasing Catholic population of the island. A much loved priest, Father Isaac Comeau, was far-sighted enough in 1915 to buy the land on Cedar Avenue upon which St. Theresa’s Cathedral stands. The new Church was built in a style suited to Bermuda; rather than being built in a Romanesque or Gothic style, a Spanish Mission type was chosen. As with any building, especially one in a sub-tropical climate, the Cathedral constantly needs upkeep. Over the past several years many improvements have been made: the refurbishing of the stain class windows that surround the knave of the Church, the installation of a beautiful Rogers Pipe organ, a new lighting system and most recently a complete re-carpeting of the sanctuary. The Blessed Sacrament Chapel is located to the right of the sanctuary and offers a quiet place to pray. There is exposition of the Blessed Sacrament in this Chapel on Saturdays from 9:30 AM until 3:30 PM.
