Welcome to St Patrick's Cathedral

St Patrick’s is an integral part of Melbourne, and its history tells us much about the State’s birth and growth. Situated on the fringe of the city grid, close enough to the heart of Melbourne to be a powerful presence and breathe with a life of its own. The beauty of the Cathedral speaks of the glory of God. Its peace reaches to our innermost heart, and its welcome to those who pass by is of a God who is ever compassionate to us, his people. We are delighted to share a precious part of our faith, culture and heritage with you. 

Mass Streaming
We are pleased to share that Masses are live streamed daily from St Patrick's Cathedral via Archdiocesan YouTube Channel

On Sundays, the 11am Mass will also be televised live on C31 (Please note: C31 is available as Channel 44 on digital television). Please share this information with friends and family homebound and/or unable to attend in person.

Tap & Go technology comes to the Cathedral
With assistance from the Catholic Development Fund (CDF),
we have installed Tap & Go terminals in the Cathedral for contactless donations. The terminals are set up with two sets at the back of the Cathedral and another two sets at the side doors of the transept. There will be four terminals at each point with pre-set payment options of $5, $10, $20 and $50. Each terminal will have clearly marked what
domination it is processing. Your donation is split equally between the cathedral costs and the support of the priests.
Cash donations are still most welcome and can be deposited in the baskets or boxes co-located with the terminals. Many thanks for your generous support of the Cathedral and its clergy.
