The story of the West Australian Benedictine Mission, as prepared and published by the Benedictine Community of New Norcia.

"Founded on 1 March 1846, seventeen years after the Swan River Colony was established, the history of New Norcia can be read through the lens of the developing history of Western Australia. But New Norcia is inexplicable without reference to the spirit of Benedict of Nursia (480-547) and the worldwide monastic movement that continues to live according to the traditions of his Rule."
