Pontifical Mass of Bishop Elliott, auxiliary of Melbourne

The auxiliary bishop of Melbourne, the Most Rev'd Peter J Elliott, celebrated Pontifical Mass at the Faldstool in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite on Sunday 12th July at Saint Aloysius' church, Caulfield. The Bishop also conferred the Sacrament of Confirmation on nine candidates from the Melbourne Latin Mass Community.

The vestments, mitres and altar frontal used on the occasion were designed by the Saint Bede Studio.
