Join Archbishop Peter A Commensoli to mark the 175th Anniversary of the establishment of the Archdiocese of Melbourne. This coincides with the establishment of the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne on 25 June 1847 –the day Melbourne was proclaimed a city.

As part of ongoing joint celebrations this year, our Anglican sisters and brothers will join us for Vespers. St Patrick’s Cathedral Choir and Singers will be joined by St Paul’s Cathedral Choir.

Music by Palestrina and Duruflé and a new hymn specially written for this anniversary year, 'Come Down to Earth, Our God of Wisdom', with lyrics by Katherine Firth and music by Christopher Willcock.
