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.

 Sunday 4 October Mass a portrait of Suzanne Aubert, as well as a relic and some of her herbal medicine were presented to Bishop Pat by Sisters of Compassion and placed in the right side display area in the nave. We acknowledge her important place in the history of the Church in New Zealand and to enable us to honour her life of holiness and dedicated service especially to the poor, the sick and the underprivileged. 

Suzanne was born in Lyon, France, in 1835, and came to New Zealand in 1860. 

She worked among Maori in Auckland and Hawkes Bay before helping to re-establish the Catholic Mission in Hiruharama (Jerusalem), on the Whanganui river.

She founded the Sisters of Compassion in 1892.  Finally she moved to Wellington and worked amongst the poor and vulnerable, establishing the Home of Compassion at Island Bay.   It is hoped that soon she will be declared venerable which is an important step towards her possible canonization as the first recognised New Zealand saint.
