History and Architecture:

The Church began with the purchase of an old rambling residence belonging to the Bowman family on 3 acres of land which became the temporary church. The Parish was established in 1928 by Fr Joseph V. Troy and the first Mass was held in the old house/church on 9 June 1929.

The foundation stone of the current Our Lady Help of Christians church was blessed and laid by the Most Rev Archbishop James Duhig DD KC MG LLD, Archbishop of Brisbane on 16 July 1961 with the opening of the church by His Grace on 3 December 1961.
