Tocumwal St Peter's Parish Catholic Church

07/11/2015

Prior to 1881 visits of Priests to Tocumwal were few and far between. Mass used to be celebrated in a small brick building also used as a school on Mr William Hennessey’s land at Beregegama, three miles from Tocumwal. Later on mass was celebrated at the Court House in Tocumwal, then at Mr Hillson’s new hall before a Church was finally built.

The Church was finally opened on May 2nd 1890, although not quite complete. The original church building only extended from the porch area to just behind the second window from the current sanctuary. The extension was completed in the following ten years, the difference can be discerned in a slight change in brick colour and different arches over the windows.
