Molde Cathedral is the cathedral of the Diocese of Møre of the Church of Norway. The cathedral is located in the town of Molde in Molde Municipality, Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The church is part of the Molde parish and the seat of the Molde arch-deanery in the Diocese of Møre. Designed by Finn Bryn, it was completed in 1957, as the third church to be located at the spot. It became a cathedral in 1983 when the Diocese of Møre was created.StructureThe cathedral is a double-nave basilica that has a free-standing bell tower next to the main building. The cathedral seats about 1000 people. The church building is shaped like a long "basilica", but with a center aisle and an aisle on the north side, but not on the south side. The entrance consists of two copper-clad doors surrounded by fields in natural concrete under a gable roof. The square campanile (bell tower) is at the church's southwest corner, and it is approximately tall. Behind the church's main entry doors to the west, there is a spacious, rectangular foyer which leads into the Sanctuary.
