History and Architecture:
The Revd H.B. Macartney purchased a small weatherboard former Methodist Church, known as St Peter's Mission Church, Camden Town, in 1875, on the corner of Glen Huntly Road and Cedar Street. After this, Messrs. R.W. B. Mackenzie, and I..J. Davies and J.H. Davies officiating as lay readers from St Mary's, were among the first people to take the services. I.J. Davies later was minister of St John's Presbyterian Church, Elsternwick*.
On 19 September 1888 the last service was held in the old location. In October 1888 the church was moved by a parishioner, Mr Edward J. Waghorn, to the North-West Corner of Sycamore and Poplar Streets, Caulfield South, and the church was opened in the new location with the name of St Catherine's by Bishop Goe on 21 December 1988*.
The Revd J. Lacy Winn, curate of St Mary's was given special charge of St Catherine's in 1892, which became independent in 1907. It moved to its present location in 1915*.
A Foundation stone reads, " A.M.D.G. This stone was laid by his Excellency the Governor of Victoria Colonel The Right Honourable The Earl of Stradbroke KCMG KB GVO CBE ADC on 10th September 1921. C.P. Schwieger Vicar".
