    Festal Evensong & Procession of St Bartholomew followed by St Bartholomew’s Fair

    sunday, 24 august 2014

    24augpmThe Apostle St Bartholomew (also known as Nathanael) was, by tradition, flayed alive as part of his martyrdom.

    For this and other reasons he has become the Patron of Butchers, and the butchers of London’s Smithfield area for many centuries ran an annual fair on his feast day (24 August). This was eventually banned in the 19th century, due to bad behaviour on the part of the crowds!

    It returns to WA this year, though, as an event for St Bartholomew’s House, the premier facility for homeless people and those at risk of homelessness in Perth, run by the Anglican Diocese of Perth.

    The evening begins at 5pm with a special service in the Cathedral, sung by the Cathedral’s renowned Consort, with the Archbishop of Perth preaching. This then flows out unto the Parvis where traditional fun fair food and games are enjoyed by the whole family.

    Bring a blanket, purchase food and soft drinks from the stalls, and enjoy the fair. No alcoholic beverages are for sale, but you are welcome to bring your own wine.

    Venue: The Cathedral.  To find us, please click here.

    Evensong of the Beheading of St John the Baptist & the New Guinea Martyrs

    sunday, 31 august 2014 at 5.00pm

    With the Launch of the Nyoongar translation of the Gospel of St Luke

    31aug5pm1Herod waangki, “Ngany kardjat John-ang kaat. Yalga ngiyan nidja mammarap ngany dwangka nidja-nidja noolongang?” Ngarl baal koordook Jesus-any djinango.

    Herod said, ‘John I beheaded; but who is this about whom I hear such things?’ And he tried to see Jesus.

    Luke 9: 9

    The Beheading of St John the Baptist
    The main celebration for John the Baptist is his birth, but John was also the forerunner of Christ in his death, following his denouncing of immoral ways and his call to repentance. On hearing of John's arrest, Christ's first words immediately take up John's call: ‘Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near; repent, and believe the good news’.
    St John is the Patron of The Order of St John of Jerusalem, Knights Hospitaller. The Cathedral is the Conventual Church of the WA Commandery.

    31aug5pm2New Guinea Martyrs
    During the Second World War, New Guinea was occupied by the Imperial Japanese Army and Christians were severely persecuted; clergy and local lay people who remained with their people after the invasion of 1942 were betrayed and beheaded. Among those who died for the faith were two Papuan evangelists, Leslie Gariadi and Lucian Tapiedi (whose statue, pictured left, is among those of nine other 20th century martyrs on the front of Westminster Abbey), two English priests, Vivian Redlich and John Barge, together with seven Australians: Henry Matthews, Henry Holland, Margery Brenchley, May Hayman. Lilla Lashmar, Mavis Parkinson, and John Duffill.
    The Anglican Board of Mission, Australia (ABM) has for many years partnered the Church in Papua New Guinea.
