Wellington Cathedral of St. Paul, Wellington

Wellington Cathedral of St. Paul, Wellington

St Paul's Cathedral is the cathedral church of the Anglican Diocese of Wellington and the seat of its bishop of Wellington.

Work began in 1955, and was completed in 1998. It was constructed in reinforced concrete due to the effects of the 1931 Napier earthquake, making other choices impractical. It began functioning as a cathedral in 1964.

The wooden Lady Chapel is on the "north" side of the cathedral. The Lady Chapel was moved to Wellington Cathedral from its original site in Paraparaumu in 1990.
