A PATH IS SET, The Catholic Church in the Port Phillip District & Victoria, 1839-1862
O'Kane, Frances
Melbourne University Press Melbourne 1976 1st Edition
 Hard Cover With 15 illustrations, previous owners name blacked out on front endpaper, Very good copy in very good dustjacket. This book examines the growth of Catholicism in the Port Phillip District from the arrival of the first priest, Father P. B. Geoghegan, in 1839 to the episcopate of Bishop J. A. Goold from 1848 until 1862. During this period Victoria became a separate colony from N. S. W. And the gold rushes brought a great influx of population, creating fresh problems for the Catholic Church. The book shows how Bishop Goold extended pastoral care to his growing flock, provided schools for the education of Catholic children under the denominational school system, and coped with internal challenges to his episcopal authority. ; 220 x 140mm; xvi, 189 pages

DELORME IN DEEP WATER takes us back again to Sainte Monique, where we meet Father Delorme, older, wiser and in indifferent health, in a new role, that of amateur detective, whose keen perceptions and intuitive understanding of the human heart, enable him to see the inward­ness of the problems which "baffle the police". Under his sister's watchful eye Father Delorme's calorific intake is markedly less, but he is as lovable as ever. A devastating picture of Sainte Monique up to date. ; 190 x 130mm; 240 pages
