The cathedral is dedicated to Saint Francis Xavier patron of missionary countries and patron of our first bishop Francis Murphy (1844-58). Initial construction began in 1851 and there has been various phases of activity leading to the installation of the tower in 1996.

The cathedral is a busy place with several daily Masses, Rosary, and confessions as well as weddings, baptisms and funerals. Being the Cathedral as well as our parish church there are numerous Diocesean ceremonies scheduled.
