In 1856 Fr Patrick Birmingham formerly of Fiery Creek was direct by Bishop Goold to reside at Mount Moriac with the charge of Colac. This continued for just one year when he left Melbourne and travelled to Sydney. Father Barrett took over his parish.
The original church was located in Chapel Street and built in 1860. A new Church was built in 1883 and opened by Archbishop Carr but this was demolished in March 1979.
The new church is of a square design with a pyramid like structure over the centre of the building.
