St. Joseph's Priory, Queens Park, Australia
. . . THIS MAY TAKE A MOMENT OR TWO . . .
|This is the Canonry Crest of St. Joseph's Priory. Note the Fleur de Lis at upper left showing the connection with the Order of Prémontré; the stellar constellation called the Southern Cross at upper right showing the connection with Australia; the yellow band with shamrocks, tracing their connection with their Irish mother Abbey of Killnacrott; and the swan, showing their specific location in the Swan River area of Western Australia (near Perth). The motto reads "In the midst of the Church."|
This is an overview of the Priory and Parish Church.
This is a bit of a closer look at the Church entrance and also the entrance to St. Norbert's College (note: the Australian educational system classifies gymnasia / secondary schools / high schools as "colleges").
