St Georges Cathedral
A place for people to gather in worship and prayer – sometimes with spoken words, sometimes in silence, and sometimes enveloped in sacred music.
Our doors are open to everyone of any faith or none.
4 December 2022 –
The Second Sunday of Advent
A special celebration of Holy Communion with prayers for healing. This service is held on the first Tuesday of every month.
WA’s first professional performance of Handel’s dramatic oratorio – the legendary story of Samson and Delilah – complete with top soloists and orchestra led by Shaun Lee-Chen, directed by Dr Joseph Nolan.
Delilah’s aria ‘Let the Bright Seraphim’ is an evergreen favourite and will be sung by local legend Sara Macliver. The role of Samson will be sung by Paul McMahon, and WA’s beloved mezzo Fiona Campbell will take the role of Micah.
“Littered with thumping choruses and tender arias, the orchestration for Samson is unusually large, even using horns. This will be a gargantuan feast of Baroque music!” – Dr Joseph Nolan
Sermon: The Reverend Ian Crooks
The service will be live streamed on YouTube.
