Description :
The Roman Catholic community in South Australia was not large, comprising no more than 16% of the population, until the 1960s. However, there were a number of religious orders established. In 1881 five Carmelite fathers arrived in South Australia from Ireland, following a visit from Bishop Reynolds of Adelaide who was responsible for various Catholic orders coming to South Australia. The fathers first settled at Gawler, running the parish and arranging missions, retreats and lectures. After twenty years they moved to Alberton, continuing their strong ministry of adult education, and where this fine missal was first used.
