The local parishioners are grateful that the Cathedral Parish is looking into the needs of the people. The established close working relationship among the various bodies of the Cathedral enable them to look beyond especially to the wider needs of the Church. The Cathedral becomes an 'umbrella' to all other sub parishes and outstation both on pastoral care and temporal needs.
