The Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Gurrandah is part of the Parish of Gunning and the Diocese of Canberra & Goulburn. "The first church in Gurrundah was a small timber building, dating from the mid to late 1800s. Additions were carried out in 1896 and a fence around the property was built in 1899. By 1918, it was decided to replace the old church and fundraising began in earnest. The foundation stone was blessed, in December 1918, by the Right Rev. Dr. Gallagher, Bishop of Goulburn, accompanied by the Rev. Fathers Carson and J. McDade, of Goulburn. The unpretentious brick building was designed by architect Mr. Otto Knopp to include the nave, sacristy and porch...The new church was solemnly blessed and formally opened by His Lordship, Dr. Gallagher", on 4/3/19231. The church no longer holds regular Masses, but is believed to still be used for weddings and special occasions. A cemetery adjoins the church. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 12/12/2022.
