The church has always had a presence in our community and plays a vibrant role in the city’s culture. We aim to strengthen our presence through The Cathedral Project: A Taranaki Taonga. Understanding our past to build our future.

Nau mai, haere mai, welcome to the website of The Taranaki Cathedral Church of St Mary. We are a warm, friendly and loving church community. A people and a place of prayer, peace and reconciliation.

The Venerable Trevor Harrison, Vicar General.
