ST JOSEPH’S PARISH
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.
