Station on the Polding Walk 2 : Newtown

Saint Joseph's Church, Newtown.
The old stone church of Saint Joseph at Newtown is well-known to Sydney-siders and travellers because the nearby rail line passes by the church on its way to Central Station.  Thousands see Saint Joseph's each day.

The building is hardly altered from the day it was opened on Sunday 25th May, 1869.  Archbishop Polding blessed Saint Joseph's on that day; its pastor and founder was the French missioner Father Joseph Marie Garavel.
