St Mary's Cathedral is the largest sandstone building in Australia; the largest Cathedral in Australia; the largest English Gothic Cathedral built anywhere in the world in the last 100 years.
St Mary's Cathedral, a newly refurbished Cathedral, this year completed the original design of architect William Wardell in 1865, with the addition of two 30 metre Spires.
One feature of the Cathedral, which is not to be missed is the exquisite Cathedral Crypt with its remarkable floor of marble and terrazzo in the form of a Celtic Cross decorated in the fashion of the sixth century Irish
treasure, the Book of Kells.
A multi-media historical exhibition, "The First Australian Catholics - from convict ships to the great fire" features in the crypt each day from 10.00am - 4.00pm, Sundays from 12 noon.
Masses are held:
Daily at 6:45am; 1:10pm and 5:30pm.
Saturday at 9am; 12:10pm and Vigil Mass at 6pm.
Sundays at 7am; 9am; 10:30am and 6pm.
Public Holidays 9am and 12:10pm
The 10.30am Mass is celebrated with the renowned St Mary's Chior of 70 voices supported by the new Letourneau Pipe Organ.
Every Sunday at 12 noon, the Dean of the Cathedral (or another of the priests) conducts a personal tour of the Cathedral and its remarkable history.
