We are a vibrant community in the heart of the City.

Our Cathedral dominates the skyline, gathering pilgrims, visitors and tourists to enjoy its splendid architecture, music and art.

The Cathedral houses Newcastle’s principal War Memorial and Memorabilia.

If you are new to the Cathedral or visiting, we hope you feel at home with us, that you meet Christ in our worship together, and that you experience us as a welcoming and joyful community.

We seek to offer worship with beauty, colour, order and dignity as with open hearts and minds we respond to the living God who makes himself known here.

The Cathedral enjoys an excellent musical tradition with a first class choir and one of the finest pipe organs in Australia.

We are a servant community, offering pastoral care and seeking to make a positive difference to life in our City. We support Samaritans, our community service organisation. www.samaritans.org.au

To all who feel they have been hurt by the failures of the Church, we want to express compassion and hope that we are able to move on together. Moving on is a project that requires patience and forgiveness and sensitivity to one another, but it is at the heart of what we are about in the Church.
