Love thy neighbour? Not at this church. The God-damned bell rings from sun rise to sunset and the church laughs at their neighbours when we request a limit on the noise pollution. Shameful. Disgraceful.

Smaller than the parish church in which I was raised this is a cathedral in simil base style. Painted yellow in and out it has the typical Catholic church symbols but more subtle than the church of my childhood. The worship book was interesting to see how much protestant music has been enshrined in Catholic worship. Surry a good sign. There is also a photo of the 5 Bishop's of Wollongong plus all parish priests including the first ordained in Australia

A trip down memory lane took me to my old cathedral in which I was baptised and confirmed. It used to be white and now it's a yellow colour. There was a service going on when I visited. I paid my respects and left. Sadly, the primary school no longer operates there apparently.

A nice local church. It is the Catherderal for the archdiocese but it is essentially a local church, not heavy on the ornamentation it has some ‘nice’ stained glass windows and other decorative features but it is really a place of worship rather than a tourist destination.

This Cathedral has lovely stain glass windows and large status. It is not overly old and has a very high ceiling. It is worth popping in or staying for a mass service.
