Messages from Bishop Patrick Dunn

STATEMENT FROM AUCKLAND CHRISTIAN CHURCH LEADERS URGING SUPPORT FOR COVID-19 RESPONSE
Thursday 4 March 2021

As Church leaders from across the denominations in Auckland, we urge Christian people to support and cooperate with the policies in place for the community to unite against COVID-19.

Frequently in the New Testament we are reminded that we have a responsibility to cooperate with the authority and mechanisms of the State, and thus to live as good citizens and act for the well-being of the wider community.

In particular we recognise the importance during this Alert Level 3 period of not gathering in our churches, staying home unless essential, and not leaving the borders of the Auckland area.

We offer our prayers for all who have been given the responsibility of decision-making and who are guiding our nation through this challenging time. We commit ourselves to supporting those endeavours in every respect.

Welcome to the Cathedral

Peace to all as we continue our journey into 2021.

Tena Koutou Katoa, Haere mai ki te Whare Karakia o Hato Pateriki raua ko Hato Hohepa! Welcome to the Cathedral of St Patrick and St Joseph, situated in downtown Auckland, at the heart of New Zealand’s largest city. On 18 September 1840 Apihai Te Kawau of Ngati Whatua gifted 3000 acres of land to Governor Hobson and on 10 May 1841 Bishop Pompallier applied to Hobson for “a sufficient space of land for a church, dwelling house, and for a college, recreation ground for youth and burial ground, for the use of the Roman Catholic public.” Approval was given and three weeks later the grant was made for all the stated purposes at this Wyndham St site with the exception of burials. Two acres of ground were allocated for Catholic use at the Symonds St cemetery.

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!

You can download the latest Cathedral NEWSLETTER and our Facebook page offers 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.

We are at Alert Level 1

We have recommenced our normal timetable: Saturday Mass is at 8.30 am,  Sunday Mass timetable of 8 am, 11 am, 4.30 pm and 7 pm.

Weekdays:  7 am Mass, 11.30 am Reconciliation, 11 am to 12 pm Adoration and Mass at 12.15 pm.

Contact tracing recording is your responsibility. Please maintain your own record of visits to the Cathedral. Our Covid -19 Tracer QR code is available at all our entrances. If you’re unwell please stay home.

We look forward to welcoming you home to the Cathedral.

Blessings – Fr Chris, Fr Tony, Fr George and the Cathedral Team
