St Brigid’s Church and Hall in South West Victoria was built in 1914 by Irish settlers whose Catholic faith was the foundation of their community life. When the Church put it up for sale, a battle ensued that saw the community fight for its sense of faith, history and belonging. Author and campaigner, Regina Lane speaks to Rachael about Saving St Brigid’s, which is celebrating its centenary.
