Description:
The Good Shepherd Cathedral in Ayr, South Ayrshire, Scotland was the cathedral church of the Roman Catholic Galloway Diocese.

History

The Church of the Good Shepherd was opened in 1957, to serve the communities of Whitletts, Dalmilling, Lochside and Braehead areas of Ayr. Before the church was constructed the people in these areas worshipped at St. Margaret's Church, Ayr and Sunday mass was also said in Whitletts Community Centre.

The church was a parish church for four years until it was consecrated the cathedral for Galloway Diocese in 1961, after fire destroyed St. Andrew's Cathedral in Dumfries.

Only three bishops have had the Good Shepherd Cathedral as their seat: Bishop Joseph McGee (b.1912 - d.1981), Bishop Maurice Taylor his successor, who was Bishop from 1981 till 2004, and the present Bishop, John Cunningham. Bishop Cunningham's was the first Episcopal Ordination to be held in the Cathedral on the 28 May 2004.

The last Mass was said in the Good Shepherd Cathedral on 20 May 2007. This is a result of falling attendance.

The Cathedral for Galloway Diocese is St Margaret's Cathedral, Ayr.
