At the heart of the Catholic Archdiocese is its Cathedral Church and the Cathedral Precinct – the arms and legs that will ultimately fulfill the Diocesan mission of liturgy, education and service.
For more than 160 years the precinct of the Cathedral of St Stephen has served as a place of worship, a quiet retreat and the heart of the Archdiocese of Brisbane. Rich in history, art and architecture, the Precinct includes the Cathedral of St Stephen, St Stephen’s Chapel, Mercy House and the Francis Rush Centre. It also encompasses St Patrick's Church in Fortitude Valley.
