Fr Leahy's building turns 50

Weekend of celebrations planned

The magnificent Our Lady of the Rosary church in Angelico Street in Woodlands has reached the half century mark.

The masterpiece in Toodyay stone was designed and built by Fr Bonaventure Leahy OP (1920-1990) in the early 1970s.

Doubleview parish will be celebrating the anniversary of the building’s opening and blessing on the weekend of 13 and 14 May 2023.

Praised by many as one of Australia’s finest modern churches, it is the subject of a new book, Stone of Eternity, commissioned for the 50-year milestone.

Members of Perth’s school and parish communities, especially any who have a past association with Doubleview, are warmly invited to attend any of the upcoming events:

  • Saturday 13 May Vigil Mass at 6pm
  • 13 May after Mass book launch at the Rosary Community Centre
  • Sunday 14 May 10am Mass celebrated by Archbishop Costelloe
  • Anniversary morning tea following Sunday Mass
