Australian Dominican's new book on Sydney parish

Australian Dominican Colin Fowler has published a book on the parish of Pyrmont in Sydney.

The book, '150 Years in Pyrmont Peninsula, The Catholic Community of Saint Bede 1867 - 2017' was launched in Sydney on Sunday, February 5 by historian Edmund Campion.

In a review of the book, John Gleeson writes:

"Dr Fowler’s work sets a high mark in Catholic historiography. This book will appeal to a wide cross section, including tertiary and seminary students, clergy, laity, inner city communities, and descendants of pioneer families. The St Bede’s Catholic community can feel justly proud that their small church has been the recipient of tremendous scholarship."
