The Restoration Walk surrounds the West, South and Eastern sides of the Cathedral. Each brick is valued at $300.00 and represents a very valuable gift to the ongoing maintenance of the cathedral. Bricks measure approx 20cm x 12cm and will provide a lasting record of your contribution. For visitors to our city this is your opportunity to assist the Cathedral and be part of our great City and its traditions.
The Very Reverend Katherine Bowyer was Commissioned and Installed as the first female Dean of Newcastle at Christ Church Cathedral on Wednesday 4th October 2017.
A full Cathedral congregation came together for the Festal Evensong to celebrate the 16th Dean of Newcastle.
Following the installation the new Dean was welcomed with loud and prolonged applause.
Dean Katherine commenced duties in her new role even before the service ended with the installation of the Reverend Michael Davies as Selwyn Canon.
Members of the Cathedral Parish, Newcastle Diocese and the people of Newcastle will undoubtedly be well served by our new Dean.
