Hermosillo Cathedral of the Assumption
The Cathedral of the Assumption stands as the primary church of the Diocese of Hermosillo and its neoclassical design with neogothic elements is a symbol commonly used to represent the Sonoran capital of Hermosillo.
A smaller church built on the site in the 1700’s was torn down to make room for a church that would accommodate larger congregations. Construction of the Hermosillo Cathedral, as it is commonly known, began in 1887. The cathedral was inaugurated in 1908, although the domed cupola was not completed until 1963.
The Diocese of Hermosillo is presided over by Archbishop Monseñor Ruy Rendón Leal, who was installed by Pope Francis on April 26, 2016. Cathedral pastors are Parish Priest Pbro. Martín Gerardo Hernández Moreno, Vicar Pbro. Marco Vinicio Félix Del Castillo and Deacon Isidoro Rodríguez Arroyo.
Mass is celebrated at the cathedral on Monday through Saturday at 7am, 8am and 7pm. Sunday mass is held at 7am, 8am, 10:30am. noon, 1pm, 5pm, 7pm and 8pm. For more information, visit the Hermosillo Cathedral’s website.
