The Parish Museum, dedicated to St John Paul II and the history of Poland is housed in the former library. It was officially opened in the year of the beatification of John Paul II by Archbishop Wilson and Archbishop Faulkner.
Exhibits housed here were mainly donated by parishioners and were imported from Poland Brazil and Argentina. There are pieces which belonged to Cardinal Wojtyla (later Pope John Paul II). Among these is Card. Wojtyla’s gorget and rosary.
In the display case dedicated to the Congregation of the Resurrectionists there is picture of Our Lady of Czestochowa (the Black Madonna) with a personal dedication and signature of John Paul and a pen with which he signed this image. The dedication was to the first Resurrectionists who came to Australia in 1978 as missionaries.
In the section devoted to the History of Poland (which was opened on the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining independence) there is an impressive collection of replicas of weapons, armour, war decorations, etc. There are also many folk products from Poland.
It is impossible to describe all the exhibits, so we invite you to come and see the museum and exhibition.
