Adelaide Southern Cross (Newspaper) - July 21, 1944, Adelaide, South AustraliaNational Library of Australia notes on the Early history of the Church in South australia1836 to 1859 by the Rev. For. R. A. Morrison diocesan activist article Bishop folding William Phillips or. Ullathorne already we have mentioned Wil Liam Gerard Phillips arrival in 1836. Phillips As a boy had formed at Downside Benedictine College Bath a close Friendship with a classmate John polding. Providence it would seem in almost direct intervention had allowed these two boys to become fast friends so that in after years god through them should bring the Catholic Church to South Australia. During the intervening years there had been Only accidental communication Between the boys. It is very probable that Phillips did not know until he landed in South Australia that John polding who Phillips knew had Benedictine priest was now Bishop of new Holland or Australia. Indeed Phillips himself without apparent reason had All at once thrown up his secure position As manager of Coutts Bank in London and decided to go out to South Australia As a government storekeeper. In this position Phillips for some time lived at Glenelg and then moved to Ade Laide and resided on East Terrace. Meanwhile Phillips had met other catholics and on their and his own behalf had opened up a correspondence with Bishop polding and the Burden of All his letters was the petition that a resident priest be sent to South Australia. In Bishop polding William Phil lips had found the same gentle and unspoiled boy he had known at Down Side. Or. Polding wrote in very kindly and affectionate terms to the Friend of his Schoolboy Days. The Bishop told him that for the present it was impossible to Send a priest. He counselled him in every Way and advised the recitation of the Rosary and spiritual Reading in common for the few catholics then in Adelaide. Phillips too the unspoiled boy was now the unspoiled Man and he said the Rosary for the Little congregation which assembled at his Home on East Terrace read them spiritual books baptised babies and did All a Layman could do to keep the Faith alive until the coming of a priest to South Australia. But when the priest did arrive Phillips had been transferred to Tasmania. Meanwhile in 1840, in answer to Phillips constant entreaty Bishop polding sent his vicar general or. Ullathorne to South Australia to say mass for those spiritually starved catholics and give them the Consolation of the sacraments for which they so longed. Priests were few in All Australia. The priests in . Were govern ment chaplains and paid by the government As such. Hence the big question of a priest s support was practical of answered there. It was not so in South Australia and what Ever catholics that were Here could not at times support themselves let alone a priest. Governor Robe in 1847, made an Effort to give religion some subsidy but the first representative legislature in 1851 abolished the Robe Grant. When or. Ullathorne arrived in 1840, he said the first holy mass Ever .said1 in South Australia at the Home of William Gerard Phillips at East Terrace. The exact location of this House has not yet been established. The Gawler incident t r. Ullathorne found the accommodation at Phillips House was not quite adequate and he applied to governor Gawler for the. Use of a schoolroom then unoccupied in which he might say mass for his Catholic people and minister to them generally. Governor Gawler refused the use of the schoolroom but it is by no Means established that the governor used hurtful and insulting words in that refusal As some have asserted. The refusal was insult enough of course but that gives us no right to say that Gawler was also gratuitously offensive. Indeed some excuse can be found for Gawler even in his refusal. He was an upright and religious Man who was. Beset by economic trials in his administration and he was in the invidious position of having to try to please both the colonial office and. The South australian company s com missioners and eventually fell foul of both. At about the Jame that or. Ull Thonie called upon them governor Gawle was at toss put poses wit the commission. The school in question Tylla Thorne save that he is wed both governor Gawler and thief com. Mission hot hut Gascyl i a of commissioner and pop Bro some other. Commissioner or.
