On a mid-winter's morning in May 2005 a violent storm ripped through Bunbury. It damaged the city's
beloved cathedral so badly it had to be demolished. Locals watched in disbelief as it was brought
down just weeks later. For more than 80 years St Patrick's Cathedral on the hill had watched over
Bunbury. It was the 'mother church' of the diocese and a community focal point for generations of
baptisms, weddings and funerals. At a time when churches are being decommissioned and the building
of a new cathedral is rare, this is the story of the making of the new St Patrick's from the day of
the storm to the opening mass almost six years later.
