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.

Sunday 11am Mass is worth the visit for the outstanding music performed by the choir and organists. The organ is an impressive rebuild of a late 19th century one that has found a new life in this cathedral. There was a lot of ceremony in...More

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.

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

It's a beautiful modern worship space that integrates the remaining original cathedral beautifully. I love sitting in the space to pray.

Visited the cathedral at Parramatta which is an interesting mix of the original cathedral which was burnt down in 1999 and very modern architecture. More about everything looking contemporary with beautiful wood and amazing artwork. Seats are okay but the kneelers are very uncomfortable.
