“A piece of Wellington history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

A special place to visit in the middle of the city. Typical early NZ architecture and a great piece of early Wellington history. Lighting a candle for your loved one makes this a special place.
Make sure you look up at the roof.

“One of the nations best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

We have few Cathedrals to boast about in NZ but St Mary of the Angels is beautiful and worth a visit. It is on a small scale compared to the rest of the world but it still holds it own. If you can try and make it for a latin Mass on Sunday mornings. 11am (but check to be sure).
but even just to sit there and escape the city for while or too is worth while. It is a true haven from the hustle and bustle of the city.

“"Light a Candle for a Loved One"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

Loved being able to go inside and light a candle in memory of friends and family that have passed over. The organ is amazing as well. You feel a little lost due to the size of the place, but is well worth the visit. My Sister even ended up getting married here as well as our parents before that. Light a candle, enjoy the sayings written around the wall, and be at peace with your God
