St Mary’s Cathedral parish has made its piety stall accessible online, allowing Catholics across the Archdiocese to shop remotely.

Miranda, who has been co-ordinating the orders and merchandise as a volunteer, said the initiative had created the possibility for items to be purchased, particularly for those who had a special need during the period of isolation because of coronavirus.

“We want to make what we have here, for example our rosaries, novenas, cards and crucifixes that can support people’s faith and spiritual wellbeing, to be available for people to access in case they need them,” Miranda said.

The online shop can be accessed through the Cathedral’s Facebook at

“Those who are interested can click the ‘Shop now’ button on the St Mary’s Cathedral Facebook page,” Miranda said.

“There will be photos of most of the items that we have at the stall and payment can be made directly to the Cathedral.

“The items can be delivered postage fee, alternatively, the ‘Click and Collect’ option is available,” Miranda continued.

Those who are unable to find the merchandise they are looking for are also able to send a private message requesting for the specific items to purchase.

Miranda also mentioned that the initiative will be kept permanently even after coronavirus-led restrictions imposed by the government are lifted.

“The goal is to be able to assist more people who can’t access the shop,” she said.

“There is a demand for the stall to be made online and the initiative will also support the Cathedral at the moment.”

Miranda clarified that the physical piety stall remains closed and will re-open when further government advice is released.
