The Cathedral was severely damaged by earthquakes in 2010 and 2011.
The reinstated Cathedral will look similar, with its important heritage features retained. It will be safer, more functional, more flexible and more comfortable. It will be better equipped for future worship and civic events.
It will be a place where all can gather and be at home, hosting friends, strangers, neighbours, tourists and visitors to our city. As the Cathedral comes back to life, it will become a symbol of hope and confidence restored.
