Please God, on the feast of the Chair of St Peter, Wednesday 22 February at 11 AM, the beautiful Church of St Patrick in Colebrook, Tasmania, will host a Solemn High Mass in the extraordinary form to mark the official opening day of the Benedictine foundation. The Mass will be offered by Fr Prior, while His Grace Archbishop Porteous will preside in choir and preach for the occasion. All are invited to this eventful ceremony which will be followed by a luncheon in the nearby town hall.
Colebrook may very well prove to be the place where the community establishes itself. At this stage, the most probable is that it will be provisionally located in the Hobart area while an adequate site and quarters in or near Colebrook can be set up for the community.
