Our Parish

St Pius X Parish was established in 1970. Its first Parish Priest was the late Father P.M. Bohan and it was then the only totally urban parish in the Diocese of Ballarat. Previously, the area was part of St Joseph’s Parish, Warrnambool, as was St Pius X School which had opened in 1962.

The neighbouring parish of St John the Baptist at Dennington was also part of the Warrnambool parish until 1965 when the late Father G.G. Payne became its first Parish Priest. (His name is commemorated at Dennington’s G.G. Payne Reserve.) The Dennington parish school, now at 263 Russell Street, was opened in 1920 in the former church in Tylden Street.

From the beginning of 2021 the two parishes became part of a single ministry district which includes the parishes of Port Fairy, Koroit and Warrnambool. The ministry district is served by two priests, Father John Fitzgerald (resident in St Joseph’s Parish, Warrnambool) and Father John Corrigan (resident in St Pius X Parish, West Warrnambool).
