Abstract/Summary The Roman Catholic parish of Townsville was established with Fr Connolly as parish priest. St Joseph's, the first church in the new parish and the first constructed in the town, was opened in 1872. The new timber building was located on The Strand close to the site of the present church. It was destroyed by flood waters which swept the building out to sea during torrential rain in 1892.
