Scottsdale, TAS - St Patrick's Catholic (8056)
Denomination: Roman Catholic
Last Updated: 12/01/2022
History and Architecture:
One of the most fascinating events in the story of Scottsdale Was the removal of St. Patrick's Church from the centre of the town to a new site in George Street. The entire operation was carried out with the help of a sturdy bullock team. There was plenty of motor transport available at the time, but it was felt that the steadier beasts would not endanger the building as much as vibrating engine-powered transport.
In April 1962, the founder of the Missionary Sisters of Service, Father John Wallis, announced that the Sisters would set up a regional mission centre at Scottsdale.
The list of Priests below also served the Derby area.
This list may not contain every serving cleric, past or present, for this church.
