Sunday 11am Mass is worth the visit for the outstanding music performed by the choir and organists. The organ is an impressive rebuild of a late 19th century one that has found a new life in this cathedral. There was a lot of ceremony in the mass although, even though the singing was excellent, the priest and his assistants did... 更多
I went here today after having been to the Cathedral many times in my childhood, knowing that it had been renovated after a fire many years before but having no idea what it was like inside since I've lived far away for years.

The part of the Cathedral ( smaller area where confessional is and holy sacrament usually exposed) is ideal for meditation and prayers. The modern sculpture and architecture of the rebuilt area which can accommodate a large number of people has good lighting and good air conditioning.
To be honest when I first went into the newly built/refurbished St Patrick's Cathedral in Parramatta, I was shocked, disappointed and heart broken. It is ugly and very impractical. It doesn't fit in at all with the original Church. The artwork is especially ugly and off-putting.
