St Pauls gained its first parish priest in September 1957. In 1982, Fr William Jukka, the parish priest at that time, compiled a “Silver Jubilee” booklet containing as much of the history of the development of this Catholic parish as he could discover. This booklet has been retyped and is available here as a PDF document. Our apologies for any remaining transcription errors.

The booklet is available in two forms:

  1. 1. Click here for an A5 version with consecutive page numbers – click here -> ST PAULS HISTORY v2 (save PDF)
  2. 2. Click here for an A4 version that has the pages “2 up”, with the pages sequenced as “recto verso” so that by printing in duplex, a A5 booklet can be made – click here -> ST PAULS HISTORY v2 (booklet PDF)

It is hoped that the history from 1982 will be compiled by parishioners in due course.
