St Mary of the Angels
Securing a Wellington Landmark

Earthquake Strengthening Project

St Mary of the Angels is a Wellington landmark and one of the most beautiful and historic churches in New Zealand.

We must strengthen this Category 1 Heritage building for future generations. The Earthquake Strengthening Project will bring the Church close to 100% of the earthquake code.

We need your commitment and generosity to safeguard this holy and restful place in the heart of the city.
