Te Whare Karakia O Hato Pateriki raua ko Hato Hohepa

We are blessed with a very beautiful and unique historic church, perhaps one of the most prayed-in buildings in New Zealand…. a House of God, an Icon of Christ, the Mother Church, a Place of Prayer, an Oasis of Peace.

Each Sunday, over 2000 people attend Masses here, with hundreds more attending weekday services. Perhaps most poignantly are the hundreds that call in each week  for prayer or peace, people of all faiths and none. 

Park for $2 per hour at The Civic car park on weekends. Find out more

Come into the city centre on public transport for as little as $2 each way. Find out more.
