Church and Graveyard Added to Heritage List; Piece of Rosevale's Catholic History Gains State Protection


Byline: Josephine Gillespie

A VITAL piece of south-east Queensland's history has been preserved, with St Patrick's Church and graveyard at Rosevale the latest addition to the Queensland Heritage Register.

Queensland Heritage Council (QHC) chairman David Eades said the church, which was built in 1889, had been the centre of former Archbishop of Brisbane, Father James Duhig's vision for the future of Queensland's Irish immigration.

"In the 1870s, Irish Catholic families were among the first to take up agricultural land in the Rosevale district," Mr Eades said.

"James Duhig thought Rosevale could become a 'little Ireland' and St Patrick's Church was the focal point for his vision.

"The church and graveyard are highly intact with many of the early fixtures, fittings and furniture still in place including an early timber altar and pews.

"It's an excellent example of a late nineteenth century rural church complex set picturesquely on a slight rise overlooking a farming district.

"The graveyard, which has also been heritage listed, has graves dating from 1887 to the most recent in 2009."

Pine Mountain resident Kevin Ahern, who played a key role in having the church added to the register, said the church was one of the few remaining small churches in south-east Queensland and was a physical representation of the role played by the Irish Catholic community in the 1870s.
