Wollaston Day: Remembering John Wollaston (18 Sept)

Posted: Saturday 13th September 2014 07:55 pm

On 18 September each year, the calendar of the Anglican Church of Australia remembers The Reverend John Ramsden Wollaston.

John Wollaston was the Diocese of Perth's first Archdeacon and a pioneer of faith and worship.

On 23 February 1984, John Wollaston was promulgated as a Local Saint and Hero of the Anglican Communion, “appointing an open observance on 18 September each year in all altars in this Province an appropriate Collect, Epistle, Gospel and other Propers”. 18 September is the anniversary of the opening of St Mark’s in Picton, the church built by Wollaston and his sons.
