This Romanesque style church is regarded as the 'Jewel in the Crown' of Monsignor John Hawes’s church designs. The building dates to 1923 and was consecrated in 1927, built mainly by Hawes, some paid labourers and local parishioners. The structure is local stone from Mullewa and concrete blocks used for the quoins and mouldings. We were told that interior rendering had been removed during restoration works, the reason for the rustic look initially employed during construction. The interior is cruciform with the main altar positioned under the dome and a series of arches supporting the roof. The side altars are remarkably decorative but in keeping with the architectural style. The main entry is twin doors with column between and large circular window over. Very good information signage around the church site, plus two large statues and a memorial to local soldiers of WW1.

I should have contacted the Visitor Centre before planning our trip. Thought that there was little to do until arriving at the Centre and given plenty of information on local history sites and attractions in both Mullewa and Pindar. Great to meet a lady so enthusiastic and helpful and with evident pride in the area. Good range of souvenirs and gifts available for purchase.
