New feature for Goulburn's Old Cathedral

Jul 19, 2011 by

The Veolia Mulwaree Trust has been proud to contribute to the Caroline Chishom mosaic unveiled recently by Governor General Quentin Bryce at Ss Peter and Paul's Old Cathedral in Goulburn. The mosaic was created by artist Nola Diamantopooulos as part of the Cathedral's m

ulti-million dollar restoration project. Around 1000 people gathered on the northern face of Australia's only greenstone cathedral to see the mosaic unveiled. Some 875,000 tiles depict Caroline Chisholm's life and work as a humanitarian helping poor emigrants. While enhancing the Verner Street facade,  the mosaic also replaces windows which had been previously concreted to protect the Cathedral's organ from weather fluctuations.
