History and Architecture:

Planning for a Church to be erected in Yarra Glen began about 1888 and Mr Charles Fletcher won the tender to erect a timber and iron building. The Archbishop of Melbourne, Reverend Dr Carr made a special visit to formally open the building on Sunday 19 July 1890.

From October 1889 Yarra Glen was served by a parish priest based at Lilydale. Ten years later a new parish was established at Healesville and its boundaries included Yarra Glen.
