Anglican and Catholic clergy and parishioners have marked 175 years of both dioceses in Melbourne with an evensong at St Paul’s Cathedral on 26 June.
Both Anglican Archbishop of Melbourne Philip Freier and Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne Peter Comensoli were in attendance.
Anglican dean of Melbourne the Very Reverend Dr Andreas Loewe preached on the legacy of both dioceses.
He called the church to rediscover unity, joy and strength and be equipped to right past wrongs and share God’s goodness, justice, peace and love.
Clergy from the Anglican dioceses of Melbourne, Gippsland, Wangaratta and Bendigo also prayed for both the churches and the world.
