  Auckland Our History In Need Conservation

The St Patrick's Presbytery is a two-storey, brick building situated on the corner of Wyndham and Hobson Streets, Auckland Central. The Presbytery was built in 1888 to an Edward Mahoney design and has served as home to the Cathedral priests for over 125 years.

St Patrick's Presbytery is a Category A heritage building (Heritage NZ- register #2645) and the longest, continually lived-in residence in Auckland's CBD.

It is an earthquake-prone building with its brittle bricks and sea sand mortar, the roof leaks and the paintwork desperately requires attention. Its internal layout suffers from a 1970’s refit and our priests are increasingly vulnerable to the living conditions that are now a part of inner-city life.

Our hope is to provide a safe and secure home so that priests can live happily and healthily in our midst.

Please support the Presbytery Restoration Appeal as generously as you can. Many thanks for your ongoing support and encouragement.

Father (Pa) Peter Tipene

Dean of the Cathedral
