Padre White Sunday Day 23 April 2017
Padre White Sunday
Padre White started the day with a celebration of the Holy Eucharist at dawn, the time the convoys had left in 1914. In a later Service, Padre White led his parishioners on a Pilgrimage to the summit of Mount Clarence, where they watched a wreath, tossed out by a boatman in the Sound, float out to sea. He believed that:
Anyone could lay a wreath on a monument, but here was something beautiful about…..dropping the wreath in the sea in memory of all those men who made their last contact with Australia here.
Today we continue that tradition and honour the legacy of Padre White.
