2019 World Heritage Day Conference: Catholicism on the Margins
Held on World Heritage Day 2019, this conference explores some lesser known aspects of Catholicism in Australia over the last three centuries. Beginning with a lecture from Archbishop of Perth Timothy Costelloe SDB, three papers will be delivered from unique perspectives by noted scholars on Australian Catholic history. These will be followed by an afternoon of workshops focusing on Parish Archives and Cultural Heritage. Join us in celebrating Western Australia’s Catholic cultural heritage within the confines of a state-listed heritage site. This event is co-hosted by the Archdiocese’s Centre for Faith Enrichment and the Archives Office. It will be held in the Cathedral’s Parish Centre, located in the Cathedral undercroft.
