The opening of the Bishop Selwyn Chapel yesterday (Sunday) marked the physical completion of Auckland’s Holy Trinity Cathedral and the commencement of its journey to consecration in October 2017. Bishop Augustus Selwyn arrived from England in 1842 and the following year purchased the land for a Cathedral. The foundation stone was laid in 1957 and two years ago the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby was present as the first sod was turned for the new chapel.
