The Rev’s a real star

Fr Stephen Conway adds the star to Mt Lawley’s Christmas tree.

BEAUFORT STREET now has its own Christmas tree with star.

In preparation for the Christmas Festival in Beaufort Street tomorrow (Sunday November 29) Anglican rector Stephen Conway recently braved some rough weather to ride a crane to the top of the massive pine tree in front of St Patrick’s in Mt Lawley.

Fr Conway wrapped the tree in Christmas lights and placed the giant star at the top of the tree.

“Considering the weather forecast,” he said to his congregation the previous day, “you might well read in the Voice next week: ‘No angel: Priest hit by lightning!’.”

Rumour has it St Patrick’s could be the highest Christmas tree in the southern hemisphere.
