St Francis Xavier’s Cathedral is
on schedule to re-open in early
October as the installation of a
restored Casavant Frères pipe
organ enters its last phase.
The choir loft has been renovated to
accommodate the 3,500 pipes that
make up the organ and case work
has been constructed to house all
but the façade pipes.
Ian Wakeley, of Wakeley Pipe
Organs in Melbourne which
refurbished the 1920s-built organ,
is overseeing the transport and on-
site construction of the instrument,
working in conjunction with the
project manager HY Building
The only one of its kind in Australia,
the pipe organ is expected to
enhance the Cathedral as a place
of worship and as a venue for
music recitals. Its installation and
associated works comprise the first
stage of major restoration works on
the heritage-listed building.
As part of the Cathedral Restoration
Appeal being conducted by the
Adelaide Archdiocese in partnership
with the National Trust of South
Australia, individuals and groups are
being encouraged to ‘purchase’ one
of the 3,500 pipes which range in
price from $100 for a ‘pencil pipe’ to
$100,000 for a 16-foot façade pipe.
In recognition of their contribution,
donors will be able to locate their
pipe via an electronic kiosk in the

The Adelaide Archdiocese offered prayers and
congratulations to Archbishop Philip Wilson on
the occasion of his 40th anniversary of priestly
ordination last month.
Prayer cards marking the anniversary were
distributed to parishes and schools throughout
The Vicar General Fr Philip Marshall said Sunday
August 23 was an important day in the life of
Archbishop Wilson and for the Archdiocese.
“This day is an opportunity for us to join with
Archbishop Wilson in giving thanks to God for his
vocation and for the generous and loving ministry
and service he has offered to us as Archbishop
over the last 14 years,” he said.
“At this time particularly, during the period of
Archbishop Wilson’s leave, it is appropriate for us
to keep him in our thoughts and prayers.”
The Adelaide Archdiocese welcomed two new
overseas priests last month to serve migrant
communities and parishes in Norwood and
Seaton. Fr Francis Won-Young Kim, from South
Korea, and Fr Roger Manalo CS, from the
Philippines, arrived in Adelaide three days apart
in July and August.
Fr Francis, 30, will serve the Korean Catholic
community which meets at St Ignatius Church,
Norwood, where he will reside with the Jesuit
fathers. He comes from the diocese of Incheo,
was ordained in 2012 and has worked in three
parishes as an assistant priest.
Fr Francis said he came from a faithful Catholic
family and had his sights set on a priestly life
Fr Roger, 45, will join the Scalabrinian Fathers
in Seaton as parish priest and chaplain to the
diocese’s Catholic Filipino Community. He was
in Adelaide from 2002 to 2005 as assistant priest
and chaplain. Ordained in January 2001 he was a
teacher by profession.
His missionary assignments have included:
several years of work in Australia, including the
Broken Bay and Sydney dioceses; time in China
as a chaplain to the Filipino community and
assistant priest; and Taiwan as a port chaplain for
the Apostleship of the Sea, assistant priest and
director of Stella Maris International Seafarers
Fr Roger said he began to discern his vocation
at about 16. He said he first came to Adelaide
almost 18 years ago to study at the former
College of Divinity in Brooklyn Park. He became
an Australian citizen and has maintained a
connection with Australia since then.
The new priests, who will work in the Adelaide
Archdiocese for three to four years, were officially
welcomed at a morning tea held last month at
the Diocesan Centre in Wakefield St.
Vicar General Fr Philip Marshall told the men the
diocese was greatly indebted to their work so far
away from family and their own congregations,
clergy and bishops.
WELCOME: New to the Adelaide Archdiocese are international priests (L-R) Fr Roger Manalo CS
and Fr Francis Won-Young Kim.
