Your Brisbane: Past and Present: Holy Name Cathedral site

There are quite a number of Brisbane Bloggers recording life and history of this great city I have adopted as my home.  This post provides a snapshot of  Catholic history in Brisbane in the Duhig era

.Your Brisbane: Past and Present: Holy Name Cathedral site

The sale of Duhig's dream cathedral site proved a financial coup for the Archdiocese and in 1989 the renovated Cathedral of St Stephen re-opened to reveal one of Australia's most innovative interpretation of restoration.

In the meanwhile the Australian Bishops have improved their financial acumen. They have managed to rebuild regional Cathedrals in  Parramatta and Bunbury as well as completing major Cathedrals in Sydney and Perth,. Not so sure that Duhig would get too excited about the nice piece of real estate in Rome
