The Cathedral of the Holy Nativity is the home of the Anglican Diocese of Natal in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa in the kwaZulu-Natal Province. It is the episcopal seat of the Bishop of Natal. The cathedral is located in Langalibalele Street.
The building of the cathedral followed the uniting of two city parishes during the episcopacy of Bishop Philip Russell, 1974 to 1981. Having been elected Archbishop of Cape Town, Russell returned to dedicate the Cathedral on 22 November 1981.
The building is modern in design and is not universally loved.
