Edward, Cardinal Cassidy passed away on 10 April 2021 after a distinguished life of service to religion and the International community.
As a photographer I met the Cardinal in 2006 at the National Aboriginal and Torres StraitIslander Catholic Assembly. It is an honour to share these images from that event.
In a wonderful Aussie online tribute on the Facebook page of Archbishop Anthony Fisher one poster wrote: RIP Cardinal Hopalong. He will forever be remembered in Woy Woy parish (Broken Bay Diocese) as he blessed the bells in the bell tower of our then new church years ago. He is remembered on a plaque attesting to that fact.
