This is an unusual but awesome spot for private functions. The church can be set up for a variety of events. On this particular evening it was used as a fundraiser event to raise money for a Nepalese school.

Nice place to visit and gain some quiet time in the city - this is an old part of the city and easy to find because it's just along the road from Sky Tower.

Beautiful gothic church, relevant sermon if you attend and if you like church music, wonderful interspersions by professional singers and the organist is also wonderfully accomplished. The venue is used for concerts. There is adjacent paid parking during business hours.

Amazing cathedral, beautiful services and the Monsignors are so welcoming. Worth a visit, just arrive early if you are heading to the service, if not you won't get a seat.

Great worship experience in this beautiful cathedral. The service was traditional with beautiful hymns sung by the choir accompanied by a great organist.

Took a quick peek inside the church before catching a bus outside of it. The stone walls were impressive with pretty stained glass.
