Rounding the gentle bend of the country road on arrival at Maryville, one is greeted by the towering presence of the new Divine Mercy Church.


A 25 m high florentine copper dome and formidable romanesque walls, punctuated by arched windows and clad in local stone, one is immediately inspired by the presence of a vital faith alive in this unexpected oasis. The project is a labour of love and faith, brought to this point by a small community of faithful led by the Parish Priest Fr Paul Fox, designer draftsman and parishioner Peter Anthes and inspired by the Architecture of Monsignor John Hawes.
