Obs. 14/9/1867 Supplement 2 e
The ceremony of deciding the new Catholic Church of St Matthew, Apostle and Evangelist, took place at Blumberg on Sunday (8th). The church is in the Gothic style of architecture, and is certainly one of the nicest of its kind in the colony. Messrs Wright & Woods furnished the plan and superintended the work which was very satisfactorily done by Mr Kich, of Mount Torrens, the contractor for the building. If the Catholics of Blumberg had got their choice of a site all over the township and its vicinity they could not have selected a more suitable one. It is built on an eminence overlooking the yet small and quiet township, so that it is the first object that meets the eye of the traveller, and is indeed an ornament to Blumberg – the mountain of flowers.
