Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

On a Saturday night in July 2023 we attended the 1800 hours (6pm) Vigil Mass.

Although especially in winter the 1000 hours Mass on Sundays (not 1030 as shown in an older photo) would be understandably more popular, there were many age groups represented.

Fr Lawrence O'Toole officiated as the regular priest was away on no doubt well deserved holidays.

The priest gave an excellent short homily and was friendly afterwards. He's typical of so many selfless Catholic priests worldwide.

The historic bluestone church has strong links to Australia's first Saint, Mary MacKillop. There was a picture of her inside the church.

Unusually, the pews have been removed. There was comfortable bench seating but no kneelers: very rare in a Catholic church.

The church had salmon carpet that looked OK and was clean. It was not cold inside so the doors must be draughtproof.

For some reason the Church did not have a second collection (for the Church: first one in Australia is normally for the priests and upkeep of the presbytery/priory).

This impressive bluestone church with links to Australia's own Mary McKillop is unmissable just up from the main area of town. Very impressive building and spire. Unfortunately the building was locked so we were unable to see inside. A bit of a sad social commentary that houses of worship need to close their doors like that during non service times.

The brick chapel constructed in 1849 was demolished in 1980. The bluestone church constructed in 1857 is decorated English Gothic Style, and the tower was added in 1877/78. Comprising a nave with a timber lined ceiling, sanctuary and the metal clad spire and tower.

Mary Mackillop joined the church with her family in 1862.

So asides from it's historical interest... this church stands against the skyline in Portland attesting to it's ability to stand the test of time. Many of Portland's historical buildings have been removed ... this one survived. It's a stunning building and it's still operating today.

This lovely old stone church dominates the hill looking out over the port. The building dates back to 1857 with the tower added in 1877/78. The church was also the parish for Australia's first Saint, St.Mary Mackillop who attended services with her family from 1862. Sadly the Church is locked up outside of activities so was unable to enter ! Well worth a quick stop & look whilst in Portland.
