Welcome to the Sacred Heart Cathedral

Sacred Heart Cathedral is the principal Church of the Diocese of Sandhurst and the home Church of the Cathedral Parish serving the people of central and north west parts of the city of Bendigo and many visitors to the church and the city.

As a visible sign of the Church in Bendigo, we aim to be welcoming and hospitable. By using our gifts to build a prayerful, well informed community, we celebrate liturgy and strive to serve each other and those beyond our Parish with missionary spirit. (Parish vision statement)
