The present church building dates from 1910 although Catholics have been worshiping here since the first temporary building was established in the site in 1886.

In 1959 the nave was widened on both sides to accommodate the growing community.

In 1965 a fire swept through the church causing severe damage to the interior.  Repairs and renovations were carried out with the addition of a new organ.
