Catholic byways

by
November 1994, no. 166

The ‘place in the city’ of Fr Edmund Campion’s latest pilgrimage into Australian Catholic life and history is St Mary’s cathedral, Sydney. Campion spent six years here as a young-priest working in the shadow of both the cathedral and the august Normal Cardinal Gilroy.

Campion sets himself to become the Victor Hugo of Australia’s Notre Dame and he keeps returning to the cathedral as a focus of his reflections and his anecdotes from Catholic history and from his personal experience.
