A Memorial Garden will be unveiled in the grounds of St Patrick's Cathedral Ballarat on Sunday, December 17, 2017 at 3.00pm as a reflection space for those affected by child abuse in the Catholic church. There has been a box handmade at St Patrick's College where the ribbons that are currently on the fence will be placed and visible through the clear top. The gate on the Lyons Street fence will also be re-opened as the main entry to the garden.
All are welcome to attend and those who have placed a ribbon on the fence will be invited to remove their own ribbon and place it in the memorial box or take them home.
