The Holy Trinity Church can be found only a few paces from the ferry landing. It is tucked in between some trees with a beautiful hand laid brick pathway that leads to the front door.
The building itself is a Spanish style church that could quite easily making the leading role in a Western Movie. The ochre colored exterior blends in harmony with its surrounds.
What impressed me the most was the open doors which seem to say: “Welcome, please come on in”. If you journeyed through Perth, most churches have closed, locked doors.
Holy Trinity Church is a Catholic Church built-in 1975. According to artifacts, a large portion of the church was built by an Irishman/Pastor named Monsignor John O’Shea. He died in 2012, but left behind a Jarrah Wooden Cross which seems to complete the Church.
If you make you way to Rottnest Island, it is well worth your time to stop in and see this amazing little venue. I can understand what Monsignor John O’Shea meant when he said “He felt closer to God at Rottnest”. There is a sense of complete peace, that lasts a lifetime, when entering this little church.
