Awhile ago, Acerules and I journeyed to Melbourne for a professional appointment. There was about 12 hours travel, on coaches, trains, and tram. There were periods waiting for transport, where we wandered a little way, here are some of the resultant photos, all are copyright Acerules.
St Augustine's Church in Bourke street, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
I had a vague memory of a scandal associated with this church I'd never been in before . I looked it up and there was a priest accused of sexual conduct.
So very sad if it is true, he went overseas and I don't know where the case stands now. When we were there it was business as usual , with people praying, a spiritual centre in the heart of the city.

The next post (Melbourne 1b) is about more of that day.
