Welcome to St Joseph’s Catholic Church
In November 1916, just four months after his arrival in Australia, Father Considine purchased the present site (on which stood an open-air movie theatre) for £1500. The first building erected was a Church-School in 1917.
In 1930 Fr Considine commissioned architect C Glancy to prepare plans for our wonderful Church, a replica of the famous Church of St Madeleine in Paris, with which Fr Considine had fallen in love on a visit to Paris.
Our current community is diverse and vibrant, with a number of cultures represented. Our community is committed to working together to live the Gospel faithfully. Taking the Holy Family as our model St Joseph’s Parish, Enfield is striving to build a loving, supporting & respectful faith community.
Visitors are very welcome here.
Parish Priest: Fr Kim Ha
