We wanted to have a look at the progress to the grounds of the Catholic Cathedral in the city centre as I have not been into town since before Christmas. Work has been progressing well since I was last there and the sacristy has been completed.
The sculpture of Blessed Mary Mackillop will be placed on this side of the cathedral in front of the two long windows about 5 m from the side of the walls.The stone work has been steam cleaned to rid the cathedral of the city grime and it looks good.
It should be placed in front of the two long windows and I am assuming it will be the first two seeing there is seating close to the second pair. It looks as though about 2/3 of the paving has been done but none of the planting or the foundations for the bronze has been done yet.
The sacristy is on the other side of the building but I forgot to take a photo of it, although I meant to.
The Cathedral looks wonderful cleaned of the city grime.
This is a view looking towards the new SA Water building but the grounds in front are part of the area that the sculpture will be part of. I hope to get some idea next week whether it will be the date as planned.
