The Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, Nanson is in the Diocese of Geraldton. The building was erected as a school/church run by the Presentation Sisters. It was officially opened and blessed by the Bishop of Geraldton on 29/1/1939. A Sacristy and Sanctuary were added in the 1950s. The closure of the local railway line, decline in mining in the district and the introduction of wheat quotas led to a decline in the area population and the school closed in 1966. The church building is still used for irregular services, although it is not listed on the Diocese website. More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 24/5/2024.
