From the Bishop

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

Happy Easter! 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.

On Holy Thursday evening we began the Sacred Triduum. What sunday is to the week, the Triduum is to the year. The Sacred Triduum is one great liturgy that called us to gather three times over three days. On Holy Thursday  evening we gathered for the Mass of the Lord's Supper. On Good Friday we gathered for the second part of the Triduum with the Passion liturgy which included the proclamation of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ according to John, and the moving veneration of the cross.On Holy Saturday evening we celebrated the third part of the Triduum, the Great Easter Vigil. We gathered around the Easter fire, the Paschal Candle was lit and we processed into the darkened Cathedral. The light conquered the darkness.We journeyed through the scriptures that culminated with the Easter Alleluia as we welcomed the Gospel.The Elect were  Baptised and Candidates confirmed, joining us for the first time at the Table of the Lord. The First Mass of the Resurrection is celebrated. Such rich days for us spiritually.... May we all be enthusiastic as we continue to share the Gospel of Joy this Eastertide!

+Patrick Dunn, Bishop of Auckland


Welcome to the Cathedral

Blessings and peace to all as we journey these Easter days of 2015!

Welcome to Auckland's 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.
