    The Feast of St Francis of Assisi, Patron of Animals

    Sunday, 2 October 2016

    2oct1

    From 4.15pm: Animals and their humans enjoy fellowship on the Parvis. Then at 4.30pm Cathedral Clergy give blessings to the animals one by one. Animals which would be comfortable in the Cathedral environment are very welcome to attend Evensong (with their humans).

    5pm Choral Evensong of St Francis in St George’s Cathedral, sung by members of St George’s Cathedral Consort.

    At this Evensong thanksgiving is offered for the beauty of the created order, for the variety and wonder of the animal kingdom, and prayer offered for our stewardship of this creation.

    Francis of Assisi was born in central Italy in 1181. He was baptised Giovanni but given the name Francesco (the Frenchman) by his father, who had married a French wife. There was an expectation that he would eventually take over his father's business but Francis had a rebellious youth. After suffering imprisonment following capture whilst at war with the local city of Perugia, he returned a changed man. He took to caring for disused churches and for the poor. Others joined him and he prepared a simple, gospel-based Rule for them all to live by. As the Order grew, it witnessed to Christ through emphasising the poverty and simplicity of Christ as an example for all. At his death, on the evening of 3 October 1226, his Order had spread throughout western Christendom. Many legends, such as that of his preaching to the birds, or that of his dialogue and friendship with a wolf, led to a strong association between Francis and the animals.

    Perth Heritage Days

    saturday 15 - sunday 16 october 2016

    15to16october1

    This year, Heritage Perth will be hosting its eighth annual Perth Heritage Days. The continued expansion of this event, coupled with the general public’s ongoing and ever-growing interest in heritage has resulted in increased visitors to the city each year.

    Our fair city did not just happen. From the early days of settlement there were systems and processes put in place to make the colony work. Just as there were people charged with the duty of carrying out the work. In 2016, Perth Heritage Days will reflect on

    “The way we worked”

    As people began to settle in this foreign land, they sought ways to adapt the rules and social customs of their homeland in a manner that was workable in an environment with no on-hand support services.

    From government to legal and court systems, roads and transport, emergency services, food producers, religious services, health-care, waste disposal and factories, the colonists worked on every part of community infrastructure to create a functioning, orderly city.

    Throughout our young history these work processes have changed many times to build, mould and fashion the state in which we live now.

    Perth – the way we worked, will be revealed through different mediums including: exhibitions, guided walks, fascinating talks by passionate presenters, workshops, and interactive drama and music presentations in associated open buildings.

    St George’s Cathedral will again be participating in Perth Heritage Days, with The Silver, The Robes and The People who Worshipped Here, Glass Art, and Stonemasonry Demonstration - all on Saturday 15 October.

    All are welcome to the Sunday morning 8.00am and 10.00am Services, after which you will be free to wander through the public spaces of the Cathedral and take photos. At 4.00pm you will hear the Cathedral’s peal of eight bells ring in preparation for 5.00pm Evensong.

    Venue: St George's Cathedral
