Archbishop Michael Kelly (Window)Print Page Print this page

A window erected by his congregation commemorates the labours of the Archbishop of Sydney towards completing St. Mary`s Cathedral. He was the fourth Archbishop of Sydney.

Archbishop Kelly succeeded to the See of Sydney on 16 August 1911 on the death of Cardinal Moran. Kelly continued his crusade for temperance. Fund-raising for schools was undertaken by Kelly, and it was estimated £12,000,000 was spent on scholastic and church properties from the time of Kelly's arrival in Sydney until his death. St Mary's Cathedral was completed in 1928 and statues of Kelly and Moran stand in the main portal.
