From the Bishop

Welcome to the Auckland Cathedral of St Patrick and St Joseph.

A special welcome to those of you who are visitors to our shores. The Cathedral is the Mother church of the Catholic Diocese of Auckland, attracting many who seek the abiding presence of the Lord. May your visit to this very sacred place be blessed. May we all be enthusiastic as we to share the Gospel of Joy. 

In this extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy I invite you to renew your faith by visiting the Cathedral and passing through the Holy Door of Mercy (the left transept facing the Cathedral Square). We invite you to use our guide. Prepare to embrace the Mercy of God by reflecting on the Parable of the Prodigal Son, (and his brother and loving father) in Luke chapter 15. In celebrating God's Mercy you might then reflect on the Parable of the Good Samaritan in Luke chapter 10 and take that same MERCY out into the world. May God bless our efforts as we celebrate LIFE in the RISEN LORD, the great season of grace!

+Patrick Dunn, Bishop of Auckland

Welcome to the Cathedral

Blessings and peace to all our visitors!

Greetings and Welcome to the St Patrick's Cathedral Website

The Cathedral is well situated in downtown Auckland, at the heart of New Zealand's largest city.

Some three thousand people attend Mass here each Sunday. During the week thousands more come to pray, light a candle or enjoy a moment's peace. The liturgical life of the Cathedral is rich and vibrant. May God bless our endeavours as we celebrate Jesus Christ ~ our Way, our Truth, our Life! Visit the Cathedral's Facebook page and you may have a sense of who we are... House of God, Icon of Christ, Mother Church, Oasis of Peace, Place of Prayer... home and place of community and celebration for God's people.


Monsignor Bernard Kiely 

Cathedral Administrator & Vicar General Diocese of Auckland

Choral Mass for St Mary Magdalene

Saturday, 23 July at 6 pm we celebrate the newly elevated Feast Day for St Mary Magdalene with a Choral Vigil Mass. Featuring the Cathedral Vocal Ensemble directed by James Tibbles, this is also an opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the musical tradition of the Catholic Church, music that is now often only heard in concert performances. 

Pope Francis has raised the celebration of the memorial of  St Mary Magdalene to the dignity of a liturgical Feast, recognising the importance of her role as the "apostle to the apostles".

Validated parking is available at the Wilsons's Car Parks on Hobson St ($4) or Durham Lane ($2).  Please bring your ticket to validate in the Cathedral.

All are very welcome.
