About St. Patrick's Catholic Church, York:

The Church's foundation stone was laid on St. Patrick's Day in 1875, with the building being completed in 1886. Its design is typical of the Gothic revival style with its spire and lancet windows. This style of architecture was particularly popular in England, Australia, and other British colonies throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

It was designed and built under the supervision of ex-convict Joseph Nunan, who was commissioned by the resident priest of the time, Father Patrick Gibney, to build a larger church to accommodate an increasing congregation.
