The Cathedral of the Isles and adjacent College of the Holy Spirit offer a wonderful resource for worship, music, retreats and events. Romantically sited on the Island of Cumbrae in the Firth of Clyde, the Cathedral is easily accessible from the mainland and the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh. Please click the links to the right to read more. This unique heritage is in need of restoration and development and this is the work of the Friends.

The Friends of the

Cathedral of the Isles

Appeal


The Friends of the Cathedral of the Isles Appeal was launched by The Honourable The Countess of Glasgow on Easter Sunday 2017. Thanks are due to all those who contributed so generously to the Appeal, which enabled significant refurbishment work throughout the College and Cathedral.

Projects funded by the Appeal included:


Re-carpeting of Library, Common Room , bedrooms and  corridors


Repainting of bedrooms and South College stairwell

New hospitality trays with eco-friendly kettles; new bedside lamps with LED bulbs in all bedrooms


Framed photographs by Karen Brodie in bedrooms


Display boards and posters


Coffee machine for “Cloister Café”


Click here for some photos (more photos welcome)


The Appeal is now formally closed, though contributions towards the work of Cathedral and College are of course always welcome: please contact the Treasurer or use the PayPal link below.


A fresh Appeal is to be launched  

for major restoration work: watch this space!
