No. 840 - Warrane - St Camillus Catholic Church (1959-2005)

Warrane is an eastern shore suburb of Hobart established by the Housing Department in the late 1940s and early 1950s. Warrane is an Aboriginal word meaning 'blue sky’ and this was adopted for postal purposes for the Montague Bay area before it was transferred to its present locality in the 1940s.

St Camillus is a short-lived Catholic church that was located at Amundsen Crescent. The church was sold in 2006 and has been substantially altered when it was converted into a house.

St Camillus de Lellis was an Italian priest who founded the Camillians, a religious order dedicated to the care of the sick. He was beatified by Pope Benedict XIV in the year 1742, and canonised by him four years later. De Lellis is the patron saint of the sick, hospitals, nurses and physicians.

Additional information about this church is most welcome as all articles are continually updated. I can be contacted through this page or my Facebook page "Churches of Tasmania" which is linked here: Churches of Tasmania.
