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.

On Ash Wednesday we commenced the sacred Lenten journey that prepares us for the great Festival of Easter. For forty days we are called, through prayer, fasting and almsgiving to allow the Holy Spirit to transform our lives. As we come to the end of LENT may the great liturgies of Holy Week and the Easter Triduum enrich our lives. May the Lord bless our endeavours!

Lent is a special time for us as the Elect (those preparing for Baptism) and Candidates (those already baptised and are preparing to be received into the church) journey these final days that lead to the celebration of the sacraments of initiation at the great Easter Vigil on Saturday night at 7.30pm. May we all be enthusiastic as we continue to share the Gospel of Joy!

+Patrick Dunn, Bishop of Auckland


Welcome to the Cathedral

Blessings and peace to all as we journey these Lenten 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.

Monsignor Bernard Kiely

Cathedral Administrator & Vicar General Diocese of Auckland
