The plaque recognises the Wurundjeri people as original custodians of the land on which St Jude`s stands. The plaque was dedicated by Archbishop Freier at a thanksgiving service on the 16th March 2013.

The Wurundjeri are a people of the Indigenous Australian nation of the Woiwurrung language group, in the Kulin alliance, who occupy the Birrarung Valley, its tributaries and the present location of Melbourne. Prior to European settlement, they lived as all people of the Kulin nation lived, sustainably on the land, predominantly as hunters and gatherers, for tens of thousands of years.
