HOLY TRINITY CATHEDRAL
Living God's Love:
Warm greetings and welcome to Holy Trinity Cathedral, the spiritual centre and focus for the Anglican Diocese of Auckland and a significant place of gathering for the people of Auckland, the wider region, and Aotearoa New Zealand. As a place of worship, gathering, the arts and learning, we are a community of people who are committed to living God's love. Out of that love, we seek to offer a warm welcome, to being creative in worship, to nourishing community, both local and beyond, and to encouraging each other in Christian service in our daily life and work.
Happy New Year! 2017 is an historic year for Holy Trinity Cathedral. The Advent journey marked the formal beginning to the Cathedral's journey to Consecration. Advent to Consecration is a year-long programme of worship, education, music, and community celebrations which will culminate in Bishop Ross Bay, Bishop of Auckland, consecrating our Cathedral on Saturday, 28 October 2107. Mark the diary now and keep your eye on the Cathedral website for the events that will be part of this special and historic year of celebration.
The new year will be marked by the return of the teams from Nicholson, from Malvern in the UK, who are building the new Cathedral Organ and Pierce Pipe Organs, from Brisbane, who are restoring St Marys organ, as they come to finish these jobs. The nave will, once again, have scaffolding as the north organ, located on the font side of the Cathedral, is installed. The case work will mirror the other side. The newly decorated organ pipes in St Mary's are truly beautiful and fulfill George Croft's original intent for the organ over 100 years ago. Simon Pierce and his team will complete installation in January and then proceed to voicing the organ. The Cathedral and St Mary's Organs will both have their opening recitals, and recital series, in 2017. Keep your eye on the website and consecration programme for details. Not to be missed!
2017 is also a time of change at the Cathedral. As we look to the appointment of a new Dean we are delighted to have The Reverend Diane Miller-Keeley and The Reverend Bruce Keeley as Priests in Charge at the Cathedral.
In our Consecration year we hope that you can join us in worship, for one of the many events, or on a visit while you are in Auckland. You are very welcome.
