Celebrating 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 celebrating the love of God for all. Out of that love, we are committed to offering 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.
This year in the community of Holy Trinity Cathedral the focus of our Lenten journey is the call to prayer. Every morning, from Monday to Saturday at 7.30am, we are gathering in the Marsden Chapel for the Daily Morning Prayer Service from A New Zealand Prayer Book/He Karakia Mihinare O Aotearoa, together with a Lenten reflection. Many in our community cannot be here at that time of day, but we are all encouraged to pray the daily office, morning and/or evening, as our schedules permit. As we pray together we are seeking to be open to hear what the Spirit is saying to each of us, and to the Church. From wherever in Aotearoa New Zealand, or around the world, you are reading this, we invite you to join us in prayer. You will find a link to our Prayer Book, and the daily readings for Lent, here on the Cathedral website. Let us pray.
This autumn will also see considerable further progress on Selwyn's Vision, the project to complete and consecrate Holy Trinity Cathedral. From the home page here you can see the link to the Selwyn's Vision blog which has up-to-date pictures. The next step is the landscaping work on the newly formed St Mary's Court.
We look forward to welcoming you when you have the opportunity to come to Holy Trinity Cathedral. In the meantime, enjoy learning some of our life and mission here.
The Very Reverend Jo Kelly-Moore
