If you stumble upon the church grounds by accident and not design, it is a lovely find. The grounds are kept nice and the building itself is a jewel in the midst of the city.

This is an amazing church for visitors and locals to enjoy. Working in the very busy Auckland CBD in a high pressured role was not easy. As a non Christian, I wasn't very sure how I would be received so I went in with a little apprehension. To my relief they were very friendly and welcoming. From then on, I was a regular to watch the stained glass and be lost in its beauty. Taking a moment at the Church became a regular 10 minute de stressing ritual. It also helped me in respecting myself and my environment.

Peaceful and tranquil place in the heart of Auckland CBD, located and surrounded by high rise buildings higher than this Cathedral.
Either you have Catholic Faith or other beliefs, either you want to spent 5 minutes or want longer, this is the right place in the mid of Auckland very busy CBD.
Every working day there is two masses at morning and midday time. Saturday morning mass and 4 scheduled masses at Sunday if you want attend the mass.
Or just simply you want to admire the beautiful old Cathedral of Auckland with the old Pipe Organ, take a tour at this Catholic Church.

We went here for a Sunday afternoon service and were very impressed by the cosmopolitan congregation and the beauty of both the church and the service. They made a special point of welcoming visitors and it all felt very inclusive - even to join the singing which was lead by a cantor. If you're passing through Auckland it's well worth the visit.

The church is filled with gorgeous colours of glass stained pictures. Its big and open. Nice to go and sit inside and have a moment or two to yourself. Breathing quietness and tranquility
