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). 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 embrace LENT, the great season of grace!

+Patrick Dunn, Bishop of Auckland

Welcome to the Cathedral

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.

Blessings for LENT,
Monsignor Bernard Kiely 
Cathedral Administrator & Vicar General Diocese of Auckland
