A Brief History of the Pyramid Hill/Boort Parish

Since its beginning in 1885 the Parish of Pyramid Hill/Boort has undergone many changes. In the days of horse and gig travel the Parish of Pyramid Hill consisted of Macorna in the north and Serpentine in the south of Pyramid Hill, with Bears Lagoon, Calivil and Pyramid Hill, where the rectory was located. Over the years Macorna closed down, then with the re-arrangement of parishes Serpentine was included in the Inglewood Parish.

In 1976 the dioceses of St Arnaud and Bendigo were amalgamated. Boort was included in the Pyramid Hill Parish when then became known as the Parish of Pyramid Hill/Boort.

More recently, after celebrating their 75th anniversary, Calivil church closed and the parishioners joined Bears Lagoon. For several years now our ministry has been capably serviced by a part-stipendiary priest (50%) who resides in Boort. The Pyramid Hill rectory has been sold.
