What people are saying:

It has a history of more than 170 years, the oldest Roman Catholic church in Australia, and its area is small. The church also preserves the colorful stained glass and wooden top floor. A small church with few people, just pass by. On October 4, 1841, the first Roman Catholic Church was held in Saint Francis. It remained the main church until St. Patrick’s Church was completed and became the official cathedral in 1868. The exterior is majestic, but the interior is much simpler than I thought. St. Francis of Assisi is a blessing to the lover. Surrounded by some very beautiful stained glass windows and paintings. The sculptures of Saint Francis and his sister Claire are on both sides of the altar. The small church on the side formed the shape of a cross. At noon today, the endless stream of people came here, and I prayed quietly in my heart. Several churches we have visited are closed.
