The Cathedral of the Diocese of Mendi, like the cathedral of any diocese is the 'mother church' of the diocese.  It is where the 'cathedra', that is, the chair of the bishop is placed.  For this reason, a cathedral is often referred to as 'the bishop's church'.

In the Diocese of Mendi the Cathedral is under the patronage of Mary, Mother of the Divine Shepherd.  Mary, under this title, has been honored for many years as the patronness of Capuchin Missions throughout the world.  Jesus, is the Divine Shepherd, the Good Shepherd.  Mary, His Mother is also the Mother of the Church and the Mother of all those who have special care of the People of God.
