Patronal Festival and Blessing of the Backpacks

Patronal Festival and Blessing of the Backpacks

On Sunday 27 January we celebrate our Patronal Festival with a Festal Choral Eucharist at 10am followed by a congregational lunch. We invite you to contribute to the lunch by bringing either a salad, dessert or something to drink. Pixie Rowe and a team will be coordinating. Please let the office know what you'll bring, and if you're prepared to help with running the lunch - either email admin@wellingtoncathedral.org.nz or add your name to the list on the desk at the rear of the Nave.

A Mass for Ordinary Time

A Mass for Ordinary Time

On Sunday the 26th of August, the Cathedral Choir will present A Mass for Ordinary Time, a jazz-inspired collaborative setting of the Mass by Norman Meehan and Michael Stewart. This was written for the Cathedral in 2016, and will be recorded by the choir in the next couple of weeks with a view to online distribution. Norman will lead a jazz combo of drums and string bass from the piano – come and sing some favourite jazz standards such as When the Saints go Marching In and Ev’ry time I feel the Spirit.

Dear Cathedral Whanau

It is our great joy that Reverend David Rowe has accepted the call to join you in July as Dean of the Cathedral. We are grateful to him and Pixie for making this commitment to serve you in this next season. 

As we lead into General Synod where Motion 29 on the blessing of same-sex relationships will be debated, we felt that it is important to clarify some conversations which we understand have been taking place around David’s position on this issue.
