History and Architecture:

In 1928 Archbishop Duhig purchased the block of some 28 allotments that made up the roughly triangular block of the hill top of Gordon Park with the intention of building a Church/School and later a Church and School.

A Foundation stone reads, " St Carthage Gordon Park This commemorative stone was blessed and laid by The Most Rev Francis R. Rush D.D. on the occasion of the Diamond Jubilee of St Carthage Parish July 1929 - July 1989. It marks the opening of this Church by Archbishop P.M. O'Donnell on 26th June 1966 and honours our Pastors". List of Pastors on stone replicated below.
