(Click here for information on parking for Mass on Sundays)
$2 SUNDAY MASS PARKING is available at the WILSON HOBSON STREET CAR PARK (the old Farmers) or at the WILSON'S CARPARK DURHAM LANE. Click here for a copy of a map. Your ticket must be validated in the Cathedral before you return to the car park. The parking ticket validator is around to the left as you enter the main doors of the church. As soon as the light turns RED withdraw your card! When you return to WILSONS go to the payment machine. It should only cost $2.
It really helps to have a TWO DOLLAR COIN ready for payment to exit .
Wilson’s have extended this to cover weddings on Saturdays and weekday evening church functions (only after 6.30pm)
St Patrick’s Square
Please note that the Square is owned by Auckland Council and NOT the Church.
It is designated a pedestrian mall and parking is not permitted.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE AVOID BRINGING CARS INTO THE SQUARE
FOR PEOPLE WITH MOBILTY CARDS A few spaces are available on either side of the Cathedral doors for people with disabilities.
These spaces MUST be kept free for people who really need them . Please be considerate.
