ARCHDIOCESE OF CG REPORT: A large mosaic of pioneer Caroline Chisholm set on an outside wall of Sts Peter and Paul's Old Cathedral in Goulburn was unveiled by Governor-General Mrs Quentin Bryce today.
The work by internationally renowned artist Nola Diamantopoulos is part of the restoration of the historic church.
Mrs Bryce described the mosaic as "a wonderful gift to the city of Goulburn".
Archbishop Mark Coleridge, who was principal celebrant of a Mass in the Old Cathedral to mark the feast day of the Apostles Peter and Paul, took a ride in a cherry picker to bless the mosaic many metres above Verner Street.
He described Caroline Chisholm as "one of the greatest daughters of the Church". She had a strong relationship with the people of southern NSW and travelled through Goulburn many times raising money and escorting young immigrant girls to their country workplaces.
