Wonderful blending of historic and modern
Feb 2020
This wonderful historic church was gutted by fire, and a beautiful job has been done of creating a modern place of peace and worship filled with natural light, encased in the original sandstone facade and stained glass. Perfect for the modern Parramatta in the cradle of modern Australia

Very beautiful on the outside, a touch austere on the inside...glass doors and no one around
Jun 2019
I thought this was closed, I approached from the Victoria Road side, then noticed the gates were open as I ventured down Marsden Street. Went in and was surprised by the austerity. Prettier on the outside.

Beautiful mix of the told and new

the old very small cathedral which burned down many years ago has been restaured into a chapel and a new large and modern cathedral built adjacent to it. the outside of the new buildign is rather plain but the inside is very atractive, airy and open to sunlight. clever design. it is worth attneding the 11am sunday mass for the music as the choir is very good

Well worth a visit

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.

Great design

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.

Overly modern interior...
Oct 2017 • Friends
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 were open and one can enter to say prayer and take some photos.
(Unlike St John's Anglican Cathedral with all its locked doors).

Place to reflect, pray or contemplate.

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.

Great for a Sunday mass with a deference.
Apr 2017 • Couples
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.

Musical excellence
Sep 2016 • Couples
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 the mass although, even though the singing was excellent, the priest and his assistants did not take part in it and stood as if they were elsewhere!

Modern but Solemn

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.
