History

The Parish of Boronia is one of the 7 parishes in the Knox Deanery.  It came into being after 

dividing from Ferntree Gully in 1964. Encompassing Bayswater, Boronia, The Basin and Wantirna 

South, the ''founding' Parish Priest, Fr. J.L.O'Neill, had 16 acres of land placed in his charge. 

Succeeding priests gradually added to the original buildings and facilities as both the Parish and its 

associated St Joseph's school grew in numbers. 


As the population expanded, surrounding parishes broke away becoming independently established, 

until the final configuration made up the Parish of Boronia, St. Joseph's and St. Bernadette's. 

The Parish offers many opportunities for involvement centering around the celebration of Mass both 

Saturday evening and Sunday mornings. Detailed information about Parish history and services can 

be obtained from the Parish House located on the church site at 212 Boronia Road, Boronia or by 

phoning on 9761 2124.
