Like the church itself, the book is the sum of the involvement of many people. Based on ten years of research by Wollombi and Friends of St Michaels' identity, Gael Winnick, it tells stories of those involved with the addition of early chapters regarding the arrival in Sydney of the first Catholics and Bishop Polding who laid St Michael's first foundation stone in 1840. The 'mapping' of emerging Wollombi and the incredible engineering feat of the convict-built Great North Road are also included.
RRP $39.95 (+p&p), published by the ACU, Sydney, the book will be available to buy in Wollombi from Myrtle House Cafe and Books and Noyce Brothers Cellar Door, also from the ACU Arts & Culture website or contact me. email@example.com for sales enquiries (proceeds to St Michael's).
