About the work

St Mary's Cathedral. In 1863 the second Roman Catholic Bishop, Dr Martin Griver, began the building of a cathedral, based on the design drawn up in England by Augustus Pugin. Probably this design had been intended for some place other than Perth. The building was constructed by the Benedictine Brothers then living at Subiaco. It was first called the Cathedral of St John the Evangelist and then the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.
It now forms the Western portion of St Mary's Cathedral, the additions being designed by M C Cavanagh and built in 1939.
