175th Anniversary Memorabilia
- Commemorative Medallion
To mark the occasion of the 175th Anniversary of the founding of St Joseph’s, a specially minted medallion is being struck in an antique brass finish.
The front side of the medallion will depict the exterior of the church as it appears today, while the reverse side will feature a section of the 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 $7.50 post and handling.
- A souvenir Calendar, containing contemporary photographs of St Joseph’s may be purchased after Mass. Cost $10.
