St Aloysius Church

Sevenhill

St Aloysius' Church has served the Parish of Sevenhill since its completion in 1875. Mass is offered at St Aloysius' each Saturday at 6pm.

A magnificent example of Gothic Revival architecture, the historic church is a striking building set among the vines and gardens of Sevenhill Cellars. Built from local stone, it features a slate roof, Mintaro slate floors, exquisite stained-glass windows and a painting of the Madonna presented to the Jesuits by King Ludwig of Bavaria in 1848. The southern transept and front steps are recent additions.

The crypt, whose entrance is outside the church on the northern side, is unique for a parish church in Australia. The crypt is the final resting place for 41 Jesuits. Since 1901, only those who died at Sevenhill, or lived for a significant period of time at Sevenhill, have been buried in the crypt.
