Mascot, St Therese's Catholic Church

St Therese's Catholic Church is located in the eastern suburb of Mascot. It stands near St Therese's Catholic School, on the corner of Sutherland Street and Coward Street. This red brick church was designed by Clement Glancey and built in 1940, in the InterWar Spanish Mission architectural style..

  1. Plain red brick appears heavy to our eyes, I think. Perhaps they were trying to save money in 1940, only the second year of World War Two.

  4. Jo, I think this style of architecture is known as Inter-War Spanish Mission in Australia so that's probably why it reminds you of the Alamo.

  6. That's an impressive church! I can't imagine how long it took laying down the bricks to make this structure.

  7. It's a gorgeous structure...I always enjoy your photos that you share of your area of the world!! Brings me closer to all who live on this globe of ours. Perhaps, me living in Texas I'm kinda partial to this style...like a mission

  8. The arched portico at the front sets it off beautifully.

  9. It's a very 'stern' looking building Jim, somehow that seems in keeping with the Catholic religion!
