Archdiocese Celebrates the Lives of Two Pioneers

On 28 April 2015, the Perth Archdiocesan Historical Commission will hold the official launch of the biographies of Archbishop Patrick Clune CSsR by Fr Christopher Dowd OP and Bishop Martin Griver by Odhran O’Brien at the Redemptorist Monastery in North Perth commencing at 6pm.
The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Perth commissioned the books during the restoration of St Mary’s Cathedral, completed in 2009.  Both Archbishop Clune and Bishop Griver made significant contributions to the design and development of St Mary’s during their respective terms of office.  The lives of Martin Griver (1814-1886) and Patrick Clune (1864-1935) also tell the story of faith, empire and social justice during the challenging early years of the local community and Church in the 19th and 20th centuries. 
If you are interested in attending, please RSVP or alternatively phone 9201 1014.
Pre-launch book purchase can be organised by contacting Odhran O’Brien at
