For today's post we are looking at the history of some of the Catholic Churches around the Lake. It appears that the Cooranbong community had a Catholic Church before other locations in the area.
1861 - St Patrick & St Brigid Catholic Church, Cooranbong
Although a reference to the opening of the Church was not able to be found on Trove, a photo of the Church billboard (https://www.waymarking.com/gallery/image.aspx?f=1&guid=1ed09f8e-e7c8-491e-aaf2-2dfbc3a259d4) on the Waymarking website indicates that the first Church was built in 1861.
In 1880 the Cooranbong Catholic community was raising funds to replace their Church.

The new Church was finally opened in December 1906.
