Reopening Weekend Celebrations

After six years, it's time to for us to be home again!

"I know people will be really delighted when they see the work that has been done and for us to be able to come home again to the Mother Church of our Archdiocese, which so many are looking forward to. This is a great moment for our Archdiocese to be able to come together and to really celebrate who we are. I ask for your continued prayers for us as an Archdiocese, for the life of renewal for our spiritual life and our call to mission and pray that this reopening will be a really significant moment in our history as we go from here." - Archbishop Paul Martin SM
