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.
With Christmas celebrations and summer holidays still in our thoughts, this year Lent and Easter are are upon us
almost as early as they can be! On our website you will find full details of our Lenten and Easter worship. A highlight of this journey
will be our Cathedrals' Lenten Study series. Our partnership in ministry with the Cathedral Church of St Patrick and St Joseph is an
important one and our joint Ash Wednesday worship and Lenten Studies Series are a highlight of this. This year we gather at St Patrick's for
these and take our lead for the studies from Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si. In a series entitled Our Common Home we will consider our
care for the earth, those who inhabit it, and for ourselves. There is a great line-up of speakers and there will be time for conversation and
questions. Please mark the diary with these dates. Whether you can make one evening, or all of them, you are very welcome.
As 2016 gets underway there is also much action with Selwyn's Vision, our project to complete and consecrate the Cathedral. Trinity Life,
our Cathedral quarterly magazine, or the Selwyn's Vision Blog, to which are can sign up on the website, are great ways to keep up to date on
progress. If you can, walk around to the rear of St Mary's and take a look at the Chapel and developing site works. It looks
We hope that you can join us in worship or if you are passing through visit the Cathedral. We look forward to welcoming you.
