Overview

Prime Minister Robert Menzies opened this Roman Catholic Cathedral in 1939. It was extended and renovated in 1972. The bell tower is Florentine campanile style and the first bell installed was cast in Dublin. Later in 1986, two more bells were cast in Holland. Three stained-glass windows, added at the time of the extension, depict the first American saint, a Polish priest and Blessed Mother Mary McKillop. The pipe organ in the choir loft was originally in St James Anglican church in Sydney. Check website for service timings.
