"Before Stratford had a church, services were held in the hall behind Tully's pub. Father Thomas Hunt of the Augustinian priests was a friend of Jim and Madge Tully and regularly conducted services there. The hall was also used for the Church of England Bush Brothers and Miss MacKenzie conducted the Presbyterian Sunday School there". From the historical plaque in front of the church.

Services were also held in the St Vincents Hall, next to the present church, (formerly Valmadre's Butchery), before the church was built.

The St Augustine's Catholic Church was blessed and opened on 28 October 1951 by Thomas Cahill, Bishop of Cairns.

More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 5/9/2018.
