Chapel of St Joseph

Three mosaic panels on the front of this chapel's altar depict the Marriage of Joseph to the Blessed Virgin, the Flight into Egypt, and the Holy Family.

A marble statue of St Joseph is centred in the niche of the reredos. At the top are the carved words: ‘St Joseph, ora pro nobis’ (St Joseph, pray for us).

The chapel is made of fine mosaic, and there is a stencilling that has a carpenter’s plane as the chief motif.

A portrait of Blessed Mary MacKillop resides in this chapel.

The inscription over the chapel arch reads: ‘Beatus vir qui inventus est sine macula’ (Blessed is the man who is found without blemish).
