St Mary’s parish community is a ‘little sign’ of God’s loving presence in Williamstown. Indeed since its recognition as a Parish in 1853, the focus of our parish community has been on the relationships we foster with God through prayer and worship.
We value and welcome the talents, gifts, creativity and experience of our parishioners and we trust you feel invited to contribute to/participate in what we seek to do for each other here at St Mary’s.
Thank you for your ongoing support and participation. If you would like to know more or become involved in our community, please contact us.
Yours in Christ,
(Fr.) Greg Trythall
St. Mary's Catholic Church was originally built in the 19th Century, which made it the second Catholic Church to be constructed in the Port Phillip district. The church was designed by the famous architect William Wardell (1823 - 1899) who later designed both St. Patrick's Cathedral and Victorian Government House.
There have been a total of three structures located on the of St Mary's Parish, the first being a timber chapel, and later being replaced by a bluestone structure in 1870. Later in the 1930s, a larger stone structure was built, which now continues to stand till this day.
