St Edward the Confessor Log Cabin Church - 1978.

"Before Fr Leo Burke arrived to take over the Parish, Fr Rollo Enright realised a dream he had when he first arrived at Rochedale.  That dream being to use timber in the Daisy Hill area to build a Church.  The slab of the new Church was laid before Fr Leo came to Daisy Hill and trees had been felled and cleaned and were in the process of being prepared for the unique log cabin church.  A plan was drawn up in 1977 by Pat Grosvener, Mike De Sousa Roque and Paul Lambert.  Many Parishioners were involved in the process of preparing the logs and Harry Vlug was engaged to build the new Church.  After many working bees and lots of Parishioners involvement the new St Edward’s Church was opened by Archbishop Rush on April 30th 1978". (Extract from Church Website - http://www.stedwardsdaisyhill.org.au/our-history.html).

Unfortunately, the much loved and expanded church building was totally destroyed by fire on 11/1/1988.

A new church building, twice the size of the original log cabin church, was erected and opened on 26/8/1988.

More historical information/photographs of the former and new church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 12/2/2018.
