The restoration and conservation of St. Patrick's Cathedral is made possible by the generosity of people like you. Just as Archbishop John Joseph Hughes in the 1860's asked for donations no matter how large or small, our own Archbishop, Timothy Cardinal Dolan, invites us all - visitors, parishioners, and admirers of this Gothic masterpiece - to support its preservation and restoration.

Parishioners, community members, and travelers from around the globe find their way to this sacred home, which may truly be called the center of Catholic life in the United States.

Join us in preserving this treasured landmark for generations to come. The restoration of St. Patrick’s Cathedral is made possible by people like you.
Today, thanks to thousands of supporters, we have completed the first three phases of the restoration.
The phases included the interior and exterior of the Cathedral from 5th Avenue to the high altar. Key scopes of work in these phases were the restoration of the gallery organ, the Cathedral’s pews, the stained glass windows, exterior stonework, altar niches and ceiling plasterwork.
Efforts are underway to secure the additional funding for the remainder of the work on the Cathedral campus, including the high altar and Lady Chapel, a new heating and cooling system, and the Cathedral garden.
