A special celebration of Holy Communion with prayers for healing. This service is held on the first Tuesday of every month.
Vernon Cornish was Dean of St George’s Cathedral from 1976 to 1979 and an assistant bishop of this diocese from 1979 to 1981. He was elected Bishop of Tasmania and in January 1982, he moved from Perth to Hobart. Tragically, he died suddenly, aged 50 before he could be installed.
A biography of this much-loved church leader, a man of many talents, will be launched on the forty-fifth anniversary of his installation as Dean of Perth. It will be held at the cathedral on Thursday, 4 February 2021, following the 12.15 pm Eucharist. Archbishop Kay Goldsworthy AO will preside at the service, Vernon’s second son, the Rev’d Jonathan Cornish, will preach, and former Archbishop of Perth, Peter Carnley AC, with whom Vernon served, will launch the book. It is hoped that Philip Cornish, Vernon’s eldest son will be able to travel from Melbourne. Dr Christine Ledger, the author, from Canberra, will be present to sign the book, which will be available at the special price of $15 (paperback) and $35 (hardcover).
Refreshments will be provided, please RSVP by 27 January to email@example.com.
