Fr Rob Galea’s long road home

01 Feb 2017 | Anna Watt

A musician for all seasons

01 Feb 2017 | Anna Watt

Jacinta Jakovcevic is a driving force in Perth music ministry. Her love of music has made the liturgy accessible to all parishioners in the expansive congregation of St Mary’s Cathedral. Australian Catholics sat down with Jacinta to hear about her role as St Mary’s Cathedral Director of Music and Principal Organist.


Music in God’s image

01 Feb 2017 | Rosie Hoban

Fiona Dyball loves to hear the 1400 boys at Marcellin College belt out the school’s song, Sub Tuum, the oldest known song to Mary, with enthusiasm and camaraderie. The image of a school full of adolescent boys lifting the roof singing a song about Mary is a little counter-cultural. But Fiona says the students ‘get it’ and that’s what matters. Without faith and prayer life, none of the trimmings matter.

Saint John XXIII’s Church Of Mercy

31 Oct 2016 | Peter Fleming

‘See everything, overlook a great deal, correct a little.’ Merciful words, unburdening words; wouldn’t we all like to be seen and ‘corrected’ that way? The speaker, Pope Saint John XXIII, was the embodiment of mercy in the Church in the 20th century.

17 Aug 2016 | Dinelle Hettiarachchi

Malarndirri McCarthy is an award winning journalist who was elected to the senate in July this year. She was kind enough to take spend some time on the line with us during our internship week in May, and we had some questions for her about her career and her Indigenous heritage.
