SACRED SITE: Archbishop Wilson is pictured with his fellow pilgrims from the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem outside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem during his recent visit to the Holy Land. The beginning of a historic new partnership between the Adelaide Archdiocese and the Australian Catholic University was marked by the signing of a Deed of Agreement last month. The signing, which took place at the Archbishop's House at West Terrace, was attended by ACU Vice Chancellor Professor Greg Craven and senior staff members from the university's theology and philosophy faculty as well as staff from the Catholic Theological College and Catholic Education SA. Under the historic agreement, ACU will take up responsibility for providing theological education in the Catholic tradition in SA with the CTC being absorbed into the university. Professor Craven said he was "very, very proud to have such a distinguished organisation and staff" join the ACU. "This union means that the Archdiocese becomes part of the largest Catholic university in the English-speaking world," he added. Professor Craven thanked Archbishop Wilson for being a "motivating force" behind the initiative. Archbishop Wilson said the partnership "would galvanise our theological work and our reflection of our faith as we move to a new future". He said the CTC and the Adelaide College of Divinity had made an "incredible contribution to our existence as a church". "It's not just an institution but a living organism in the life of our local church, providing so much vitality," he said. A Mass of Thanksgiving to mark the closure of the CTC will be held in St Francis Xavier's Cathedral on Saturday November 30 at 6pm.
