History and Architecture:

On 18 December, 1850, Michael Gannon purchased 1905 acres from the estate of Captain John Townson whose grant of crown land “took in the whole of the present suburbs of Hurstville and Carlton reaching almost to Kogarah Bay”.Michael Gannon transferred the ownership of two acres of his land to the Most Reverend John Bede Polding on 24 November, 1855 as a site for a Catholic church.

The latest shape are after the alterations and additions to the old building and was blessed on 18th June of the jubilee year 2000.

A Foundation stone reads, " This stone was blessed and laid by His Eminence Cardinal Moran 3rd May 1908".
