    'The Cross through Liturgy' with the Reverend Ryan Green

    The Sacred Season of Lent is a journey we undertake each year with our Lord Jesus Christ – from His public ministry through His betrayal, passion and death by crucifixion, to His resurrection and ascension to the Father’s right hand.

    The story has its origins in history and is interwoven with rich symbolism. It is the story of our redemption from the power of evil that began in the Garden of Eden, through the Old Testament teaching on sacrifice that atones for sin and which prophets insisted had moral consequences for those seeking salvation or wholeness. Jesus Christ conquered death and sin, and we are called in the New Testament to walk in his footsteps to fulfilment and glory. In Lent, we make time to survey the wondrous Cross that makes this possible.

    Come on the journey at the Cathedral in Lent!
    Monday 9 March: 'The Cross through Scriptures' with Dr Jeremy Hultin.
    Monday 16 March: 'The Cross through Poetry' with Professor Christopher Wortham.

    Evensong with Blessing of the Barrel

    sunday, 12 april 2015

    interior photoandrewday

    Confrerie de la Chaine de Rotisseurs, Bailliage of Western Australia; in conjunction with Whisky Live; The Order of St John of Jerusalem, Knights Hospitaller; and St George’s Cathedral, present the ceremony of the Blessing of the Barrel, followed by ticketed single malt tastings and a formal five course dinner. Sunday April 12 at 4.45pm for 5.00pm commencing at St George’s Cathedral.

    This memorable evening will begin at the Cathedral with the entry of the Cathedral Ministry and Choir, followed by the celebratory barrel piped in by Bishop David Murray, who has composed and will play a piece, “The Highland Barrel” especially written for the service. During Evensong, the barrel and its contents will be blessed.

    Following Evensong, there will be a unique tasting (ticketed) of four single malt whiskies. Unique, because each whisky will be matched to a concerto from Vivaldi’s "The Four Seasons” (Summer, Winter, Autumn, Spring), played by a string quartet from the WA and Perth Symphony Orchestras. The experience will be enhanced by commentary from Martine Nouet, acknowledged as the best whisky taster and judge in the world.

    At the conclusion of the tasting, Bishop Murray will lead the guests by bagpipe to a nearby distinguished and exclusive Club, for a five course degustation dinner. A welcoming dram from the blessed whisky will introduce the dinner which will then be accompanied by the four whiskies, this time matched to each course. A different liqueur whisky will be served with dessert.

    This event is in keeping with the aim of La Chaine des Rotisseurs in presenting outstanding events to its members and guests which cannot be repeated.

    Dress: Formal Evening Wear.

    Time: 5.00pm-10.00pm.

    Cost: Entry to Evensong is free and no booking is required. There will be a collection taken during the service. Entry to the tasting and dinner is by ticket: $300.00 per head. Bookings required: La Chaine des Rotisseurs, P.O. Box 1594, Applecross WA 6953. Email: bailliwa@chainedesrotisseurs.com.au.

    Rose Windows and Rosé Wines

    Sunday 19 April 2015

    rose-window

    “God is light and in him there is no darkness at all.” (1 John 1:5)

    On Sunday 19 April a special Evensong is held to celebrate the newly commissioned coloured glass, to be installed at a later date in the Cathedral's clerestory windows.

    The design, entitled BE WITH ME, by local artist Ian Dixon of Perth Art Glass aims to “create an atmosphere of colour and of changing light high in the clerestory that filters and softens as it cascades down into the Cathedral. ...The intensity of colour will be projected on the surrounding apertures as the sun passes over and around the Cathedral during the course of the day. During the evening when light does not transmit through the windows there will be a reflective quality from the white opal and dichroic coated glass giving a star like quality to the windows.”

    The translucent beauty of the new windows is celebrated with a kaleidoscope of the different hues of WA’s rosé wines.

    Time: 5pm.

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