Cathedral Life
ALL In Person Services Suspended (until 1-meter or less distancing required) 

There will be no services offered at Taranaki Cathedral until we are at an Alert Level which requires 1-metre (or less) physical distancing. While the Government rules for Level 2-Delta do allow for in-person gatherings of up to 50 people, Government Guidelines and our Diocesan regulations stipulate that we need to ensure there is a 2-meter physical distance between anyone not in the same bubble.

Level 2-Delta at Taranaki Cathedral

Government and Diocesan advice and rules means that (like everyone) we will be operating differently at Level 2-Delta than we did during previous Level 2 periods.

St Mary's Parish Recycling Depot

As part of our ongoing work to “Value Now” Jen has been investigating how we can ensure we are valuing our environment. Thanks to her mahi we, the Cathedral staff, will be making a few small but important changes around some day-to-day activities — including recycling. A recent trip to New Plymouth’s recycling depot (next to the Transfer Station in Colson Road) opened Jen’s eyes to the large number of common household items that CAN be recycled but are not able... read more

Parishioner Tim Harland Being Commissioned As Hospital Chaplain

Tim Harland jokes and says he has his “affiliation for falling off motorcycles” to thank for his commissioning as Hospital Chaplain next week. In reality though, the role seems tailor made for this man of deep faith. As a young man Tim felt drawn to chaplaincy. But as so often happens, life had other plans for him.
