This is a gorgeous cathedral in the middle of Napier. If you're around for a Sunday service, as I have been a few times, and for funerals, the choir and the organist are a beautiful, audio treat. I feel it's a shame that religion is taking something of a back seat (or pew) these days as places like this were central to so many lives even 25 to 30 years ago in New Zealand. Many people who only visit churches for Christenings, weddings and funerals are missing out on the communities which were built up around these places as people have moved away from The Church. For those who are still interested, you won't be disappointed with your visit, just make it more memorable by attending a service to get the full effect.

Just happened upon the cathedral while walking around town. I didn't go inside but did walk around the front area which had a fountain and a very large cross. The cathedral was quite large and had a very large tower with a cross on top of it. It was quite an interesting looking building.

It was rebuilt in the 30's after the earthquake and is very much of its time. Light and bright it still seems modern when compared with the gloomy gothic cathedrals of Europe. Well worth a look.

A beautiful place to visit and see the architecture and history associated with it. Depending on the your choice of detail information you can spend from one hour to 3 hours. The staff is very friendly too.

Definitely worth an hour of your time. The staff on hand are very nice and friendly and will tell you the story of the Cathedral. There is a lot of history associated with this building. To much to detail here but look it up and you will find it very interesting.

We visited to share a moments silence following the dreadful shootings in Christchurch and found the envoronment and feel of the church was exactly what we needed i.e. reassuring, uplifting, peaceful and appropriate for contemplation. We very much enjoyed our visit to this friendly building

We were so pleased to visit here and although rreasonably simple it has its own grandeur.
The volunteers in the entrance were very welcoming and informative .
The organ(second largest in New Zealand) is an absolute delight,

We were made welcome and a brief history was shared. We enjoyed looking around and reading the material about the previous cathedral, the earthquake and the building of the new cathedral.

The outside of the building is underwhelming. Short of being made of breeze block without any facing it could not be more plain. The TA photos of the inside look more interesting but, despite trying on two occasions, the building was not open.

Fortunately nothing in central Napier is much of a walk so no real detour to complain about. Conversely, they might try a bit harder with the cathedral.
