The medallion would make an excellent gift to mark the birth, baptism etc of a relative or friend by having their name and details of the occasion engraved on the reverse side.

The front side of the medallion depicts the exterior of the church as it appears today, while the reverse side features a sectionPicture1 of Picture2the blackwood timber panelling that was designed and installed in the sanctuary in 1973 by Brother Walter Nicholls CP. The cost of a medallion in a hinged case is $25 plus $11.50 registered postage and handling of up to 4 medallions to the same address.
