    Evensong of St David

    sunday, 26 february 2017 at 5pm

    landscape  ascalon for web

    David, or Dewi, was a monk and a bishop in the sixth century. He was reputed to be an exemplar of the ascetic, spiritual life but was also highly regarded for his kindness and compassion to others, particularly the poor and the sick. He is believed to have founded the monastery at Menevia, now St David's, and also at least a dozen other monasteries. He is said to have based his Rule for his monasteries on that of the Egyptian desert monks, with a strong emphasis on hard work, abstinence from alcohol and a refraining from unnecessary speech. He died in about the year 601 and has been regarded as the patron saint of Wales since at least the twelfth century. - Exciting Holiness

    At this service we celebrate St David and the contribution that Welsh migrants have made to the history of Western Australia. We are joined by the Welsh Free Church, our neighbours on St Georges Terrace. Hymns are sung both in English and in Welsh. Bishop Jeremy James preaches and music is sung by members of the Cathedral Consort.

    Venue: St George's Cathedral

    Ash Wednesday

    Wednesday, 1 march 2017

    ash wednesday webThe season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. Imposing ashes on the forehead is an ancient custom which reminds us of our own mortality and coming judgment (‘remember you are dust and to dust you shall return’) and therefore encourages us to take stock of our lives, to be grateful for all that is good, and with God’'s help to amend what is wrong.

    There are said Eucharists with Imposition of Ashes at 7.45am and 10.30am. The Choral Eucharist with Imposition of Ashes is at 6.30pm. Music is sung by members of the Cathedral Consort.

    Venue: St George's Cathedral.
