Cathedral Tour with Amanda Blair

A new video featuring media personality Amanda Blair has been commissioned by the Adelaide Archdiocese to show the importance of St Francis Xavier’s Cathedral to the life and history of the South Australian community.

Amanda, who was married in the Cathedral, takes her children on a tour of the heritage-listed building and interviews the Archbishop of Adelaide, Philip Wilson, history buff Bernie Victory (Assistant Director, Centacare Catholic Family Services) and members of the bell ringing team.

Produced by Benjamin Fleming of Colourblind Films the video depicts the beauty of the building but also highlights the current state of the interior and the urgent need for restoration of our historic Cathedral.
