St Mary's Cathedral Tour Guide

THINKING OF BECOME A CATHEDRAL TOUR GUIDE. St Mary’s Cathedral is looking to recruit volunteers to become Cathedral Tour Guides. If you enjoy meeting new people and have a love for architecture, history or art and have a few hours to spare then you are invited to help us show off the Cathedral and its treasures to tourists, visitors and school groups. Previous experience is not essential.All Guides are required to commit to a regular schedule of attendance as agreed with the Tour Coordinator. We also have volunteers who commit to one Sunday “shift” per month. Tours are offered for groups who have pre-booked during the week and are conducted from 1 hour to 1.5 hours. If you are interested and would like further information please contact: Kevin Gothard Tour Coordinator 02 9544 3948 or kevingothard@optusnet.com.au
