Royal Commission report into the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle

The Royal Commission report into the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle has been released. You can read the report by clicking on the link below.
We continue to pray for all whose lives are impacted by abuse.
The report makes for deeply confronting and shameful reading, and makes substantial findings of inaction and failure. The report has also identified some key issues, and this provides a focus for us as the Cathedral community as we shape our future life.
We remain committed to being a place of safety, inclusion, and welcome for all , and especially for children and those who are vulnerable.

The Restoration Walk

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.
