November 9, 2010 Restoration

On March 20, 2006, Cyclone Larry ( ) struck the coast of northern Queensland, with the town of Innisfail sustaining the most damage.

A visitor to Innisfail and the surrounding areas today would be hard pressed to find much evidence of this catastrophic event. Financial assistance from the Federal government and/or insurance has allowed repair or replacement of damaged or destroyed property to take place.

Today, I would like to show you Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic church, which was severely damaged in the cyclone, and has now been lovingly restored.

The roof reconstruction resulted in the removal of the former flat ceiling, to reveal the hidden timber structure. This has given a spacious, airy feel to the interior of the church.

What was hidden by the flat ceiling.

  1. My compliments to the congregation and the architect for unveiling the fine roof structure, turning the storm around to celebrating the rebirth of the church!
    Soli Deo Gloria!
