Dedication of a cathedral

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: What texts should one follow for the anniversary of the Dedication of an archdiocesan cathedral? There are only the Common of the Dedication of a Church and The Dedication of the Lateran Basilica (9 November) in the missal. We had always been using the former until someone questioned it. 

Thank you for always answering our queries.


A: You use the common for the dedication of a church. There are no separate prayers if the church is a cathedral.
