Join us as we celebrate our cathedral’s 150th birthday this December!
Our birthday party begins with ringing our bell 150 times at 12 noon. Then the entire Wollongong community is invited to share our festival birthday celebrations. It will feature musical entertainment (including brass band and organ recital), Devonshire tea, sausage sizzle, historical displays and tours, jumping castles, fairy floss, memorabilia, give-aways, second-hand book and CD sale, and more.
As like every Sunday, visitors are welcome to our anniversary Sunday services:
This is the actual date on which our heritage-listed ‘church on the hill’ was consecrated 150 years ago in December 1859.
Here’s a photo of St Michael’s from the north east, estimated to be pre-1920s. Note the gas street light in the foreground to the left!
