St Mary's Cathedral, Perth

The last place that we visited prior to leaving Perth was this - St Mary's Cathedral. Now, for some days, we have had wanted to visit but as rain, and wind transpired to make us visit other places, we had no choice but to leave it to the very end.
The main front entrance.
 Imagine that you're standing in front of the stones that was used to build and is still part of the cathedral, dating back to 1865...!
 What is interesting is that on most sides, the old traditional design is there. And sticking not so offensively but nicely into it;s design, is this modern glass look.
 Another foundation stone? 2nd phase... that's what happened.




 One last groupie...
 As for the interior, one can see where the new meets the old.


 Our Lady, Please Pray For Us...

 The grand organ. Pity that I've only got to hearing it a handful of times...
 When I came to this section, one feels total sadness. For at here, is a memorial for those that have passed away due to the MH17 downing. You see, many were to continue their journey from Malaysia to Australia for their Christmas holidays...

May their souls rest in peace.
The End.
