Catholic Cathedral College’s roots can be traced back to the mid 19th century. Near Lyon, in France, a woman named Euphrasie Barbier formed a new order called the Sisters of our Lady of the Missions.

Pope Benedict announced the Year of Faith as a time to “Reinforce our faith in [Christ] and to proclaim him with joy to the people of our time.”
As a Catholic Co- Educational College, Catholic Cathedral is celebrating the Year of Faith. The Year of Faith is designed to renew the faith of Catholics so that we will be credible, joy-filled witnesses to the Risen Lord in the world today, capable of leading others to faith.
The goal of Catholic Cathedral College for the Year of Faith is to foster:
-An encounter with Christ (which is the foundation of our faith) through authentic witnesses to faith,
-A deeper understanding of the truths of our faith that Jesus revealed.
