Hid­den holy his­tory

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - THE SNITCH -

A SLICE of 2018 was buried some­where on the grounds of St Mary’s Cathe­dral yes­ter­day to com­mem­o­rate the build­ing’s 150th an­niver­sary.

The time cap­sule con­tains a copy of yes­ter­day’s The Daily Tele­graph, var­i­ous other news­pa­pers and coins from 2018.

It was buried by Arch­bishop of Syd­ney An­thony Fisher OP and Dean of St Mary’s Don Richard­son.

Fa­ther Richard­son said its lo­ca­tion would not be re­vealed so “per­haps some fu­ture gen­er­a­tion will open it, or per­haps it will re­main hid­den un­til the end of time”.

Af­ter a fire de­stroyed the cathe­dral in 1865, it was re­built to be­come the largest in Aus­tralia.

Arch­bishop An­thony Fisher and Fa­ther Don Richard­son.
