Ipswich, November 4
St Michael`s new Roman Catholic Church and cemetery at Tarampa were formally blessed and opened this morning by Archbishop Dunne , assisted by the Rev Father Horan, of Ipswich.  There was a large gathering of people including a considerable number from Ipswich, who were conveyed to the church in vehicles from the Lowood Railway Station, to which a special train ran from Ipswich. The land was the gift of Mr Kluck, and was valued at £160. The church cost £368. The collection made at the service realised £105.11s.  The Archbishop preached a very eloquent sermon on the occasion.
