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.

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

From the Bishop…

In 1988, my predecessor Bishop Browne responded to the need to provide on-going financial support tocommunity organisations that were already doing valuable work in our area.

In answer to this call for help, The Foundation was set up with a Trust Deed that sought to provide assistance to anyone without prejudice: to families, at-risk youth, the elderly, and those who lived on the margins of society.

In 1994, I was asked to be the Patron of this Foundation and to continue that support. Over the years I have seen demand for those services continue to grow. And through the grace of God we have always been able to meet that need. My thanks to you, the loyal supporters of the Foundation, who
continue to work with us to make sure that we are there to help, when help is needed.

‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ (Matthew: 25 – 40).

While many things may have changed over 25 years, one thing still remains constant: there are many who are falling behind who shoulder the burden of poverty and fear. It is our gift to support and help them in whatever way we can.

I know that there are challenges ahead; the life of the poor is never easy. And I know that the demands on your time, resources and support are growing, too. Could I ask you to continue your journey with us? During winter our community organisations tell me that they are stretched to the limit to meet the extra demand for their services. Please continue to remember thosewho find that they have less and less. Any donation you make will support our brothers and sisters in need.

July is Caring Month for our 25th Anniversary.Please keep The Foundation and all our partner organisations in your prayers.

With God’s Blessing…Bishop Patrick Dunn
