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 established in the 1920s adjacent to the former church in Tylden Street.

The two parishes currently share one priest, but the involvement of an active laity enables them to continue to fulfil the hopes and dreams of their earliest days, as they endeavour to respond creatively to the challenges and opportunities of contemporary society.
