The early days of the Catholic
Church in the west end of the city
were brought to life by historian
David Hilliard OAM during a lecture
to the Bishop Murphy Society at St
Patrick’s Church last month.
About 25 people toured the Grote
Street church which was built in
1914 on the site of the first Catholic
Church building in the colony
of SA. The existing church was
designed by Walter Bagot, a young
Adelaide architect who had studied
in London and was inspired by the
great Renaissance and classical
basilicas of Florence.
Mr Hilliard spoke of the vibrant
Catholic community in the west end
and the many working class families
who contributed to the building
works. This theme was continued
by the chair of the Archdiocesan
Bequest Committee, Kevin Duggan
AM QC when he addressed the
Society during afternoon tea in
the Archbishop’s House on West
Terrace, where the society’s
namesake once resided.
He paid tribute to Bishop Murphy
who walked into a Protestant
environment and succeeded
in laying the foundations of the
diocese and earning the respect
of all, as evident in his glowing
obituary in The Times newspaper.
“He was described as ‘eloquent
and and astute without a particle of
arrogance and charitable without
ostentation’,” said Mr. Duggan.
“Bishop Murphy is certainly a
fitting patron for our bequest
society which recognises generous
benefactors to the Church.”
