The Como, Kensington and Manning areas were originally part of the South Perth St Columba’s community.  With post-war growth, separate parishes were established at Kensington in 1950, Manning in 1953 and Como in 1955.  While both South Perth and Manning have published information on their history, this is yet to be done for Como – Kensington.   Recognising the need to document our history so that we can appreciate the efforts of earlier parish priests and parishioners, the Parish Council has endorsed a proposal to complete a history project.

A small team comprising Michael Taylor, Kerry Hardwick, Judy Priestley, Josie Staude, Tony Bray, Marianne Taylor and Lucia Steeman has been established.  While some information is available, we are sure that there is considerably more available in the memories of our parishioners.  Therefore we need your help. To assist your memories, we have included a timeline with key dates for buildings and parish priests.
