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.

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.
Art lovers will have the opportunity to view the suite of eight paintings by renowned New Zealand artist Melvin Day entitled Stabat Mater Dolorosa, which have been gifted to Wellington Cathedral of St Paul by Day’s estate. They are being unveiled in the Cathedral during the Choral Evensong service on Sunday 18 March at 5pm, and will thereafter be on permanent display.
During Lent this year we will be working through the devotional created by the Anglican Diocese of Wellington, A Sent People. This is a stunning resource to guide small groups through six weeks of study and discussion. Along with the detailed adult group studies, the resource contains weekly movie recommendations with discussion questions to provide another angle on this year’s theme of “being sent.” The inter-generational studies are great for families to do together, and contain their own movie recommendations that the kids will love.
