The Catholic Parish of Finley and St Mary's Church


From late 1879 the Murray Hut Hotel was the home to periodical worship, baptisms and marriages with a Parish Priest available from Jerilderie.

The Finley Free Press of 30th September 1904 reported under the heading “Official Opening of R.C. Church” that “The Rev. Dr. Gallagher, Bishop of Goulburn, opened and blessed the new Roman Catholic Church on Sunday last (25th Septembr 1904) in the presence of a very large number of people.

The original St Mary’s comprised the front section of the present church, including the porch, and as far forward as the forth gothic window. An influx of residents following World War 1 taxed the capacity of the original building and extensions were carried out in 1919 and blessed by the Bishop of Wagga in 1920.
