New Norcia Things to Do: 59 reviews and 68 photos
There are many paintings directly on the walls of the Church as you enter. On one wall of the church is the painting of The Mother of Good Counsel (otherwise known as Our Lady of Good Counsel) which was the focus of the first miracle to occur at the settlement. Apparently a bushfire threatened New Norcia in 1847. Dom Salvado brought the painting out and pointed it in the direction of the flames. He prayed and the wind promptly turned in direction and the fire dissipated.
Address: The Abbey Church, New Norcia
