St. Mary’s Cathedral is located on Mall road in Jalandhar Cantonment area, Punjab. It comes under the province of Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Delhi. It is a representation of the secular culture of India and was first built in 1847 by Rev. Fr. John McDonnell, the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin (O.F.M.CAP). Soon after Independence, the old Church was demolished in 1857 amidst violent riots refuting secularism. The Church was then re-established by the blessings of Pope John Paul II, and laid by the bishop of Jalandhar Rev. Dr Symbhorian Keeprathlaid. It was inaugurated on the Hindu occasion of Diwali on 19 October 1989. The Cathedral is flanked by fragrant flowers, gardens and a gallery called ‘Rosary Villa’ that showcases images of Jesus Christ and Mother Mary.
