The Child Jesus & St Joseph Catholic Church, Rockdale is a Mass Centre for the Society of Saint Pius X, which sits outside the formal Catholic Church. It was founded on 1/11/1970 by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, in response to requests of young men interested in a traditional priestly formation. Eleven young men began their studies under the archbishop at a new seminary in Econe, Switzerland. Only Latin rite of Mass permitted. "Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre was a man of the Church, missionary, founder of the SSPX, - a man who helped preserve the tradition of the Church after Vatican II." [Sourced from:  - this site contains much more of the story] More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 4/5/2022.
