                             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 thousands each week who seek the abiding presence of the Lord. May your visit to this very sacred place be blessed.

May the Lord  bless our endeavours as we launch the Diocesan Pastoral Plan          Fit for Mission. Let us be enthusiatic as we share the Gospel of Joy!


+Patrick Dunn, Bishop of Auckland


Welcome to the Cathedral

 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 two and a half 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.

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

Thursday, September 11, 2014A letter form Bishop Pat for the Annual Cathedral Appeal

My dear Sisters and Brothers,

St Patrick’s Cathedral Annual Appeal

It is the Annual Appeal time for our Cathedral of Saints Patrick and Joseph.  Envelopes for your donation, no matter how small, are available in every Parish this weekend, 13 and 14 September.  As you know, I am very grateful to those of you who give so generously and have done so in previous years.  The Appeal this year coincides with the seventh anniversary of the re-opening of the restored Cathedral so it is an opportune time for us to remember with gratitude our sacred treasure, the precious taonga we have in our Diocese and City. 

The Cathedral is ‘home’ to all Catholics in the Diocese - a treasury of our Catholic heritage and history in Auckland and New Zealand.  The Cathedral is also a haven for people of other faiths who visit frequently, along with the many visitors and overseas tourists.  Much photographed, remarks are often made about its peaceful beauty, its reflective prayerfulness and its welcoming presence.  Maintaining the Cathedral in pristine condition requires ongoing care, attention and considerable funding.  Right now scaffolding along the inside walls of the nave indicates the huge maintenance costs that must be outlaid for its long term upkeep.

On Pentecost Sunday this year, I launched the Diocesan Plan “Fit for Mission” at the Cathedral.  My hope is that the Cathedral will be ‘fit’ for Christ’s mission by continuing to be a “House of God”, an “Icon of Christ”, a “Place of Prayer”, an “Oasis of Peace”, and the “Mother Church of the Diocese.”  From a well-maintained, prayerful Cathedral, we can all draw our strength for Christ’s mission and in particular be “Fit for Mission” in our homes, neighbourhoods, workplaces, parishes and City of Auckland.    

I am grateful for the financial support you have given to the upkeep of the Cathedral in the past and I am well aware of the many calls that are made on your generosity today.  Your support means so much to me personally and to those entrusted with the care of the Cathedral.  Thank you so much.  Together we can do this.

Yours Sincerely in Christ,


+Patrick Dunn                         Msgr Bernard Kiely

Bishop of Auckland      Cathedral Administrator
