St Johns Roman Catholic Richmond


Built on land donated by John Cassidy who at the time was living at “Woodburn” Richmond in 1835, St. John’s is the oldest Roman Catholic Church in Australia. 

Designed by ex convict architect Frederick Thomas the foundation stone was laid by Bishop Polding on a visit to Tasmania in 1836.  In August that year Rev. James Watkins arrived in Tasmania as Vicar General.  He officiated at the opening ceremony of the church on December 31st. 1837.  The Church was greatly enlarged and a tower added in 1859.  The spire was added in 1893 and demolished in 1972. 

A visit to St. John’s would not be complete without visiting the grave of the son of the Irish rebel leader, Thomas Francis O’Meagher who is buried near the church’s doorway.  He was originally buried in the cemetery behind the church but it was feared that crumbling of the steep bank would result in that section sliding into the Coal River so in 1948 the remains were transferred to its present site. 

His convict father (who never saw his son) managed to escape to America where he joined the Union army and rose to the rank of General.  After the Civil War he was appointed secretary of the territory of Montana and later became Governor.
