The First Move towards the Building of the Church

In the earlys 60’s Warrnambool grew outward toward the East, and its growth engendered may community needs,  not least amongst them being a “bricks and mortar” expression of faith.

In January, 1973, Warrnambool East was established as a parish in its own right. Within weeks, the Catholic Community met to discuss the question of a place of worship. Thanks to Monsignori O’Connell and Fiscalini, the centre already had a large block of land and a modern primary school. At their first meeting, the people elected a committee to be responsible for the building project.

After almost three years of planning, meetings, and hard work, the goal was attained – the completion of Our Lady Help of Christians Parish Church.
