The Cradle of Several Perth Religious Orders
Article and Photo by Fr Robert Cross
On a recent visit to the St John of God Retreat Centre in Shoal Water the photograph below caught my eye.
The caption under the photo reads:
"The Cradle of at least four Religious Orders established by the Dr Matthew Gibney within the Diocese as it remains in 1970 since about 1890"
The building was located on Adelaide Terrace (presumably at 227 as the ascribed number seems to indicate).
