The Cathedral Church of Saint German or Peel Cathedral is located in Peel, Isle of Man. The cathedral is the parish church of the parish of German, which includes the town of Peel, and was built 1879-84. It was made the cathedral by Act of Tynwald in 1980.
The original cathedral of St German was inside the walls of Peel Castle and fell into ruin in the 18th century. After a considerable period of debate over who owned the ruins and site, the decision was eventually taken to not rebuild that cathedral. In 1895, the bishop consecrated his chapel at the bishop's palace as pro-cathedral and instituted a chapter of canons with himself as dean. That arrangement (bishop as dean) persisted even after the consecration of the new cathedral.
The cathedral has a dean and chapter. Until 15 October 2011, the Bishop of Sodor and Man was dean ex officio, but on that date the vicar of the parish became dean ex officio, as had been the historical arrangement from the 12th century until the late 19th. The chapter consists of the Archdeacon of Man ex officio and four canons who are all parochial clergy.

The Cathedral has two choirs: the Cathedral Choristers (mixed boy and girl trebles aged 7–14 years) which sing a weekly Choral Evensong on Sundays at 3.30pm and an adult voluntary choir 'the Nave Choir', which sing most Sunday morning 10.30am Eucharists.
At the moment and while the trebles develop, for large diocesan services a choir is drawn from the Cathedral Choristers and the Nave Choir, as well as invited singers from across the whole diocese.
The Cathedral has a large 2 manual Brindley & Foster organ in the Chancel and a Viscount 3 manual "Physis" organ in the Nave. Across the next 5 years the pipe organ will be rebuilt, re-ordered and significantly enlarged to meet the demands of the Cathedral's choral program.
The Organist & Director of Music is Peter Litman.
