This former St Patrick's Catholic Church, Mount Moriac is now closed, and the property has been sold (2017). The church had been part of the Diocese of Melbourne.

A number of church buildings have been erected on this site over the years. The first foundation stone was laid on 31/10/1858 and the church opened in 1863 by Archbishop Carr. Another church was built in 1883 but this was significantly damaged by a cyclone in 1926. Using the original foundations, and furnishings the church was rebuilt about 1953 and opened and blessed by the Most Rev Justin Simonds, Archbishop of Melbourne.

More historical information/photographs of the former church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 13/1/2018 & 8/8/2021.
