I’ve shared with you the tui mural photos that we took on Christmas Day but we also enjoyed a wonderful visit to a Catholic church in South Dunedin named St Patrick’s Basilica – it felt very special to be there. For the record I know very little about Catholicism but the church felt very welcoming.
St Patrick’s Basilica, South Dunedin, New Zealand
The basilica is a beautiful building. We entered through the glass foyer.
This wall had words of welcome in many different languages. Love this!

There were colourful floral arrangements, I really enjoyed their vibrant colours.
The association with Ireland is clearly shown.
Stepping into the church from the foyer, my attention was taken by this ‘Romero Cross’, not a term I’m familiar with. I liked the colour, simplicity, and evident symbolism. Happily there was a description nearby.

I’ll be doing more posts about St Patrick’s Basilica, really nice church.
