Comments

The former Our Lady of the Way Catholic Church, Wallan building was moved to its present site from Graytown (formerly Spring Creek) and opened and blessed on 14/12/1969. It had originally been opened and blessed as the St Augustine's Catholic Church, Graytown on 23/12/1917,  by the Bishop of Sandhurst. When there was a greater need for a church building in Wallan it was relocated. The church was closed in 2019 and the property subsequently sold, when it was replaced by a new church of the same name in Wallan East. More historical information/photographs of the former church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded  17/12/2021.
