St. Peter's Parish - 2000s
2000 - The Holy Year
"Celebrate 2000" was held on the first weekend of June in downtown's Victoria Park, to commemorate 2000 years since the birth of Jesus Christ - "Jesus Christ, Present for All". This outdoor festival was hosted by the downtown churches, including St. Peter's. On Saturday, June 3, a Hymn Festival was held at Metropolitan United Church, in which our Cathedral Choir took part.
January 7 - Epiphany Sunday - the Holy Year officially came to a close. Bishop Sherlock, the Ordinary, and Bishop Grecco, the Auxiliary, were in Rome on this occasion to commemorate the Holy Year with the Holy Father.
This year marked 75 years since our Diocese's Jubilee Year. Therefore, it was the 75th anniversary of the Cathedral's decoration. In a particular way, this involved celebrating the construction of the organ with a number of organ recitals and concerts.
After structural studies and consultation within the parish and the Diocesan administration the rectory, once known as the Bishop's Palace, was demolished.
