the Cathedral parish in commemorating the
centenary of Easter Rising on Sunday May 1.
The Adelaide Archdiocese was the only diocese
in Australia to hold a Mass for the Rising
anniversary, a fact noted by Archbishop Wilson in
He referred to the huge contribution of Irish

After Mass, Archbishop Wilson welcomed
members of the Irish community to lunch in the
Cathedral Hall and expressed his desire to work
together to ensure the feast of St Patrick, the
patron saint of the Archdiocese, was a significant
event in the life of the Church in Adelaide.
Irish Australia Association president Margaret
Monks thanked Archbishop Wilson for the special
celebration, saying it was “the most fitting end”
to a month of remembrance and thankfulness
for the people who lost their lives in the cause of
freedom for Ireland.
“I think the Easter Rising commemoration and
celebrations held here were significant for the
Irish community,” she said.

and it brought back to me that perhaps if this had
not been done I would not have so much pride
and joy in being an Irish woman.”

WALK OF REMEMBRANCE: Archbishop Wilson joined members of the
Adelaide Catholic community in the annual ANZAC Eve Vigil Mass and
procession to the North Terrace War Memorial where a youth vigil is
held by young South Australians representing a variety of service and
community groups. The youth vigil stems from the military tradition of
‘holding ground’ whereby a reconnaissance patrol would find and hold
strategic position in preparation for the arrival of their army, which
often involved an all-night vigil.
