Coventry Cathedral Churches
7 Priory Row
Coventry Cathedral is a dynamic centre of worship and mission, a place of pilgrimage, liturgical creativity, healing; a focus for international reconciliation, education and the arts; a frequent venue for national services and television and radio broadcasts; a church for the City, the Diocese and even for the world.
Coventry's earliest cathedral, dedicated to St Mary, was founded as a Benedictine community by Leofric, Earl of Mercia, and his wife Godiva in 1043. Built on the site of a former religious house for nuns, its sheer size is some indication of the wealth which Coventry acquired in the middle ages.
