St. Anthony's Cathedral, Lahore (Pakistan).

Sacred Heart Cathedral (Urdu: سیکرڈ ہارٹ کیتھڈرل‎) is the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Lahore, located in Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. A special commemorative postage stamp was released on the Centenary Day of the Cathedral by the Government of Pakistan.[1][2] Benedict XVI also sent a message for the jubilee of the Lahore cathedral.[3] Archbishop Adolfo Tito Yllana, Apostolic Nunciature of Pakistan, read out the special message from the Pope to the local congregation in Lahore.

In 2007 Father Andrew Nisari was the Rector of the Cathedral.[4] This Holy Church is to be considered as the "National Church of Pakistan", for the minority Pakistani community within the country respectively.
