This cathedral is a building of two halves it seems - original sandstone and a much bigger, more modern main church. The statue of Christ and the crown of thorns are well worth a visit.

The original Cathedral burnt down years ago, I havent been back here for years but went very recently. I love how they have preserved the old parts and have built a new and modern church. Great architecture.

The facade of the church is deceivingly cosy and inviting, but the interior is so refurbished with modernity that it has lost its feel of a churchy-feel. Didn't feel very edified because it is too posh and too modern. Yet, I was glad the doors...More

A very modern design for a Cathedral. As a visitor it has lots of unique features and characteristics to admire. As a patron, a good place to reflect and pray.

If you're looking for somewhere different to attend mass, then this is your place. The acoustics are absolutely amazing and the architecture was eye catching. An hour of solace.

This is now my local Parish. Not a big church for a cathedral but always enjoyed hearing the mass here especially the 8:00AM service.

Visit if feeling spiritual. Nice place amongst all the hustle and bustle of a city. Used to live in the area and is familiar with the church. Was rebuilt due to a fire.

Not at all what we were expecting! Although the outside of the building is a traditional stonework style, the interior is anything but old fashioned. All is very simple, sleek and modern and the huge extension with its sculptures and hanging crown of thorns was...More
