Lent 2021

Following the lifting of London’s Major Incident status, the Chapter of St Paul’s is pleased to announce that the Cathedral has reopened for public worship and private prayer. Service times and private prayer opening varies – please check the Cathedral calendar page for further information. This decision will be reviewed regularly as we closely monitor the situation, and we hope to reopen for sightseeing when it is safe to do so. This will be no earlier than 17th May 2021 as per government guidelines.

For details on our opening hours and services, including online services for Holy Week and Easter, please visit the Holy Week and Easter page.
While the Cathedral was closed, we produced a number of resources to worship at home during Lent. 

Stations of the Cross

Each Friday during Lent, we will share a video of the Stations of the Cross.. The Stations of the Cross have formed part of Christian devotion during Lent for many centuries and originated when early Christians visited Jerusalem and wanted to follow literally in the footsteps of Jesus, taking the path from Pilate's house to Calvary, pausing for prayer at various points. Eventually those pilgrims brought the practice back to their home countries and ever since then Christians of differing traditions have used this form of devotion. 

Friday 26 March - Thirteenth and Fourteenth Stations of the Cross


Friday 19 March - Tenth, Eleventh and Twelfth Stations of the Cross 

Friday 12 March - Seventh, Eighth and Ninth Stations of the Cross 


Friday 5 March - Fifth and Sixth Stations of the Cross

Friday 26 February - The Third and Fourth Stations of the Cross


Friday 19 February - The First and Second Stations of the Cross
