The Lane Cove region was initially part of the Jesuit parish of St. Mary’s at North Sydney with the nearest church being the chapel at Riverview College. It wasn’t until 24th August 1919 that the eighty year old structure now known as the Dorritt St Hall was dedicated as the Church of St. Michael, Longueville. It had been built for £850 (2011 = $60,000 ) on land on the corner of Dorritt and Little Streets which had been purchased by Fr. Michael Sherin for £350 (2011 = $24,000).

The dedication to St. Michael stemmed from the coincidence of the names of  Fr. Michael Sherin, the builder Michael Breen and, of course, the then Archbishop Michael Kelly, who made the final decision!

There was mention in the Catholic Press of 28/8/1919 that Fr. Sherin had secured an elevated site on the main road close to the Longueville tram terminus and that, as houses were being erected on all sides, St. Michael’s would soon be in the middle of a flourishing suburb. By 1924, the population of Lane Cove had doubled and the church was at capacity.

+61 2 9331 4043

Paddington originally formed part of the Sacred Heart Parish, Darlinghurst. The Franciscans were entrusted with the pastoral care of Woollahra and Paddington in November 1879. Paddington was established as a parish in its own right in 1887 and Fr Bernardine Lawler ofm became the first parish priest. The foundation stone for St Francis of Assisi Church was blessed and laid on March 23rd 1889 and Cardinal Moran officially opened the new church on Sunday 22nd June 1890.

In 1917 it was thought that the Church needed to be enlarged but after the building of the new sanctuary it was realised the plans were too costly and we are left with a church which consists of the nave of the 1890 church designed by John Barlow, and the transepts, sanctuary and sacristies of the 1919 church designed by Bart Moriarty.

St Mary’s Cathedral stands in the centre of Sydney as a Christian statement of grace and beauty. Generations of artists have bequeathed to it their magnificent gifts in stone and glass, designing a unique space of solace and prayer within this vibrant city. This Cathedral represents the spiritual origins of the Catholic Church in Australia.

It is one of Sydney’s most treasured historic buildings and one of the finest examples of English-style gothic churches in the world. William Wilkinson Wardell, the 19th century architect, dreamed of a gothic structure shaped from the local yellow-block sandstone on which this city is built. The building was finally completed 100 years after the architect’s death. The Cathedral is dedicated to Mary Help of Christians.
