Our Parish

In 2015, we marked our 150th anniversary as a parish in Helensburgh. As far back as 1865, there was a Catholic worshipping community in our town. From very humble beginnings, the parish has steadily grown and we are indeed fortunate to have a Church which is a beautiful, dignified setting for the celebration of Eucharist, for prayer and for gathering this Christian community.
