Year 7 students from Gleeson College visited St Francis Xavier’s Cathedral on April 3, enjoying a guided tour which detailed the history of the building and also gave them the opportunity to hear the pipe organ being played. The students then attended the annual Deceased Bishops Mass which honoured their college patron Archbishop James Gleeson as well as Archbishop Andrew Killian, Bishop Philip Kennedy and Archbishop Leonard Faulkner. The Gleeson College choir performed at the Mass, which was also attended by family and friends of the deceased bishops. Picture: Ben Macmahon.
