About St Mary's Cathedral

St Mary's Cathedral is located at the corner of College Street and Prince Albert Road, across from Hyde Park. It's the site of the Archbishop of Sydney, also called the Mother Church of Australian Catholicism. The double towers of the cathedral are emblematic of Sydney. The cathedral is built using local sandstone. The gothic architectural style of the steeple arches inherited the air of European Middle Ages cathedrals. The cathedral crypt's mosaic floor by Father Melocco is made out of colorful pebbles on the theme of Genesis, with exquisite craftsmanship.

    St. Mary's Cathedral is the seat of the Archbishop of Sydney. It was built on the site of Sydney's first Catholic Church. It is the largest and oldest religious building in Australia, opposite Hyde Park. The cathedral is built of local sandstone, and the architectural style of "Gothic" is a relic of medieval cathedrals in Europe. It was founded in 1821, and the Catholic priest officially came to Australia in 1820, so St. Mary's Cathedral is also known as the mother of the Australian Catholic Church. The Cathedral being built in 1865 was destroyed by fire. The reconstruction began in 1865 and took more than 60 years to complete in 1928. From 1998 to 2000, the steeple of the church was renovated. It's a beautiful church. It's worth watching carefully.

    St Mary s Cathedral, or St Mary's Cathedral, is the Cathedral of the Catholic Church of Sydney, so it should be called a cathedral, not a church; only where the bishop is located can it be called a cathedral. The church is a Gothic building with a magnificent exterior and solemn interior. When we enter the church, we are shocked and stunned by the architectural design. Even if they have different beliefs, they will be inspired to be pious. Saint Mary's Cathedral was declared a secondary Temple by Pope Pius XI in 1930. It honors the patron saint of Australia who will always help the Virgin Mary. It is also Australia's largest church, but not the highest church. Located on the high-rise College Street in downtown Sydney, the first Notre Dame Church was founded in 1821 and destroyed by fire in 1865. Temporary wooden churches were also destroyed by fire in 1869. Since then, the Gothic Revival Church of the 19th century has been built.

    St. Mary's Church in Sydney is close to Sydney Sky Tower and can be reached on foot. The church building is old and magnificent. Its contents are more dazzling. The church is large and there are many seats for worship. Tourists can visit it free of charge. But don't disturb the worshippers. It's really worth visiting. It seems that there is a donation box. I don't have any donations, so I don't remember it completely. Weekly comments, there is a park across the street, where many people play.

    St. Mary's Cathedral is the largest Christian Church in Sydney. It has a history of more than 100 years. It is a typical Gothic church with two pointed bell towers rising into the clouds, making it very European. Outside the church is a beautiful garden, which is Sydney's favorite place. It's beautiful and quiet. It's a rare quiet place in Sydney's bustling city.

    Every Christmas Eve, Sydney's largest St. Mary's Church holds a light show. Sydney residents who do not go on vacation either eat at home or gather in the square in front of the church door to watch!!
