Belmore, St Joseph's Catholic Church

St Joseph's Catholic Church is located along Canterbury Road, in the south western suburb of Belmore. It was built in 1919 in the interwar architectural style.

  1. Excellent time for a new church, just as the lads were coming home after the war. Was that green colour from the original 1919 front of the Church? If not, was green chosen for any symbolic reason?

    1. Those are green tiles so I would say they are part of the original church. I can't find any information about this one because surprisingly it isn't even heritage listed.

  3. I like how the cross design is worked into the window frames. The green framing is quite striking.

  5. Welcome to Jim in the New Year!

    I love churches built of brick. Aquamarine architecture adds to the charm.

    Happy New Year, JIM!!!!

  7. Lovely sturdy church. I imagine soldiers coming home from the war found solace in this building. Cheers and have a lovely day.
