St. Paul's Cathedral [Katedralja e Shen Palit]

St. Paul's Cathedral
This refreshingly simple if somewhat gargantuan house of worship was consecrated in 2002. The cathedral is built using a combined triangle and circle shape, representing the Trinity and God’s Eternity respectively, and features a relatively plain interior. The stained glass windows at the front feature both Mother Teresa and Pope John Paul II. A range of classical concerts are held inside the building throughout the year.

St. Paul's Cathedral Comments

  • I attended Mass there on 11 September 2013 at 18.00. A notice said there was daily evening Mass and three Mass celebrations on Sunday including an English Mass at 9.00. The Cathedral appeared to open for visitors every day until 19.00.
  • I visited St. Paul"s Cathedral around 3pm, but the gate was closed. Do they have the daily mass or on Sunday? >>Tirana IYP writes: It"s Albania, and unfortunately opening times are always uncertain. There"s mass on Sundays.
  • Answeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrr???????????????? Today the orthodox church was open, and the minaret, too. Just the catholic church was closed. Shame!!! Why????? The time of the masses? We saw just the luxe cars of the "poor" priests. Domine! Misere vobis!!! The fact will be sign at Vatican! // TIYP EDITOR: Dear Ferenc, this is not a forum but a reader's comments service. Your church was closed because this is Albania, and nothing goes as planned. And when you phone the Vatican, ask what kind of cars they use there, we're sure they're not Dacias!
  • Unfortunately the most important information isn't here. Why don't you give information about the GPS coordinations, and the ordo missarum. Is the address luxes??????? We wanted to go to mass for occasion of Marie's day! "Thanks" for your unintelligent information. Awful, shame!!! TIYP EDITOR: Dear Ferenc, look again and you'll see a Google Map with the exact location. Like many buildings in Albania there is no exact street address. Mass times are not regular so we don't publish them, it's easy to find out using the phone number provided.
  • The figure with Mother Teresa is certainly not Pope John Paul II. He (as all popes) used to wear a white hat and dress. He is the Catholic Archbishop of Tirana-Durres Mgr. Rrok Kola Mirdita, on whose initiative St.Paul's Cathedral was built.

    TIYP says: Pope John Paul II is not the person depicted next to her, but on another window in the church.


Open 08:30-12:30, 17:00-19:00; winter: 08:30-12:30, 16:00-19:00.
