The commissioning Mass and
opening recital for the new
St Francis Xavier’s Cathedral pipe
organ have been postponed.
The events were cancelled due to
the organ builder, Mr Ian Wakeley,
injuring himself over the Christmas
period. Mr Wakeley was therefore
unable to complete the toning work
in the scheduled timeframe.
Three free Fringe lunch-time
concerts also were cancelled.
New dates for the commissioning
and recital will be advertised as
soon as possible.
Archbishop Philip Wilson returned to ministry in
January after nine months on leave.
In a letter to priests, deacons and “all the people
of the Archdiocese of Adelaide”, Archbishop
By now most of you would be aware that in
March 2015 I was charged with an offence under
section 316 of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW). When
I learned about this charge, you may also recall
that I decided that it was appropriate that I take
some time on leave to enable me to reflect and
consult widely about the charge.
In the last 9 months, I have used that time for
constant thought, prayer and reflection and I
have decided that after the extended leave I have
taken, it is now appropriate for me to end my
leave and resume my duties as Archbishop of
I have taken this decision because I do not
know how long it will take for the charge to be
resolved and therefore I do not consider I could
responsibly remain on leave indefinitely given
my serious and heartfelt responsibilities as
Archbishop of Adelaide.
For these reasons, and because the new year is
approaching, I have decided that I will end my
period of leave and resume my duties in January
Some people may disagree with my decision
and I respect that. In no way should this
decision be interpreted as my not taking this
matter very seriously. On the contrary, I take
the charge extremely seriously, but I have made
a commitment to the People of God in the
Archdiocese of Adelaide and it is a commitment
in love that I feel I can no longer defer.
I have therefore made this decision now because
I want to resume this commitment as soon as
possible after the commencement of the new
As further evidence of the fact that I treat these
allegations very seriously, but also in recognition
of the importance of public accountability and
transparency, I have also decided that even
when I resume my duties, I will take no role in
professional standards matters in the Archdiocese
of Adelaide, and nor will I be involved in the
professional standards work of the Australian
Catholic Bishops Conference or my former work
with the Truth Justice and Healing Council until
this matter is resolved.
Finally, I would like to thank all of those people
who have expressed support and good wishes
during what has been a very trying and difficult
time. I have been greatly heartened by this and I
thank you so very much.
I am limited in the further comments I am able to
make about the matter, but insofar as I am able to
do so, I will keep you informed of any updates.
Archbishop resumes work

Creating a time-lapse record of the installation
of a 100-year-old, 300 plus-piece pipe organ
was always going to be a challenge, says
photographer Ben Macmahon.
The organ was painstakingly put together piece
by piece over a four month period during which
the Cathedral was closed.
To capture this process Ben rigged up three
cameras to document the installation. Each
camera was programmed to take one photo
every three minutes, eight hours a day, five days
a week for four months.
“As the pipe organ began to take shape I moved
cameras around and eventually rigged them as
close as I could without getting in the way of
the crews responsible for installing and piecing
together the organ,” said Ben.
“After the installation was completed I began
the editing process which involves a lot of
organisation and heavy computing.
“Per camera I was taking 20 photos per hour
which equals 160 photos per day, 800 photos per
week, 3,200 photos per month – a total of 12,800
“With three cameras that is a grand total of
“The video will be 24 frames/per second which
equates to 1600 seconds or 26 minutes of raw
The finished video, which appears on the new
electronic kiosk in the foyer of the Cathedral,
shows the Cathedral’s pipe organ coming
together in minutes instead of months. It also
can be viewed at www.adelaide.catholic.org.
