The St Mary's Catholic Church, Williamstown is in the Parish of Williamstown and the Diocese of Melbourne. St Mary's was first recognised as a separate parish about 1853. The present church building is the third to occupy this site. The first was a wooden structure which was replaced about 1870 by a bluestone building, to be replaced by the present structure about 1930. Today the Parish Centre, School and Presbytery adjoin the church building. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 14/5/2018.
