Sacred Heart Cathedral Parish, Broken Hill, NSW 2880
Scaffolding was erected around the Sacred Heart Cathedral to replace the roof that had been damaged by a freak hail storm that took place in November 2016. This storm brought large hail stones that pounded the roofs, buildings and windows throughout Broken Hill City.
Because of the height and angle of the roof and that exisitng material is copper, it has required a team of roofers who are experts in erecting copper sheeting.
The works began on Monday 16th April 2018 and is expected to continue for at least three months. In this time weekday services will be held in the Church of Saints Peter and Paul in North Broken Hill, while Sunday services will still be held on Saturday night (Vigil of Sunday) as well as Sunday itself.
The local Broken Hill paper, the Barrier Daily Truth has printed an article about the Cathedral Works. Click on the following:
