Paddington, St Francis of Assisi's Catholic Church

St. Francis of Assisi's Catholic Church is located along Oxford Street, in the inner city eastern suburb of Paddington. This heritage listed church was designed by John Bede Barlow and built in 1890 in a combination of Victorian Academic Gothic and Victorian Romanesque architectural styles. Additions were made in 1915, designed by Bart Moriarty.

  1. That window would no doubt be quite something from the inside. A very distinctive church.

    1. There are two statues of saints on the facade. I wouldn't be surprised if one of them was St Francis.
