Bishop Vincent Long addresses the community at Lawson...


This video was recorded on Sunday, 13th November 2016 at the celebrations to mark the restoration of the parish church of Our Lady of the Nativity at Lawson. In his homily, the Bishop of Parramatta, Vincent Long Van Nguyen offers the very frank assessment of a bishop who appreciates the crisis in trust the Church and its leadership are presently facing. Bishop Vincent's homily links in Sunday's Gospel prophecy by Jesus of the Destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem, with the destruction this community in the Blue Mountains experienced when their parish church was damaged a year ago, and to the wider crisis in trust that is afflicting the institutional Church globally. The video incorporates hi-lites of the day and includes in full Bishop Vincent's homily with captions.

Cox's River: Discovery, History & Development by Jim Barrett

The telling of the story of the Cox is a de facto peep into the vast area of the southern Blue Mountains. The watershed of the Cox covers the area from Katoomba to Kanangra Walls, from the Jenolan Main Range to King's Tableland/Bimlow Tableland. Cox's River has its rise on the Great Dividing Range at Piper's Flat. In a (generally) southerly then easterly course it cuts a great trench through the Blue Mountains for a distance of ninety miles until it joins the Wollondilly River.
