Since the diocese began in 1864, Goulburn has remained one of the central gathering spots of all Catholics in Australia. Situated in the first inland city of Australia, the Cathedral is a unique and stately building that provides a precious link to Australia’s past.
The Old Cathedral holds international status as the only greenstone Cathedral in the world and is listed on the New South Wales Heritage Register.
With your support, we will repair, restore and renew the Old Cathedral as a place of international pilgrimage and an enduring legacy of faith, hope and love.
As we approach the 150th anniversary of this significant historic building, we urgently seek your help to restore its structural integrity, repair its damaged features and to renew our relationships with each other and our faith through this shared effort.
