The first Mass said in the district of Haberfield took place on February 28, 1909.

Later that year, following the Beatification of St Joan of Arc on 18 April 1909 (her Canonisation took place on 18 May 1920), the first Catholic Church in Haberfield was built in Ramsay St. It was believed to be the first church in the world to be named after St Joan of Arc.

In 1911, Domremy College, named after the village where St. Joan of Arc was born and raised, was built.

The College, staffed by the Presentation Sisters, once served as a boarding school and welcomed infants, primary and secondary students, before Years K-6 were phased out from 1966.

As the Parish and the congregation grew, a larger church was needed, and in 1954 the foundation stone of the Church of St Joan of Arc was blessed by Cardinal Norman Gilroy.

The Church, located in Dalhousie St, Haberfield, was completed in 1955 under the supervision of the then Parish Priest, Mons John McCooe.

Fr Phillip Zadro was appointed parish priest in 2016 having spent the last 17 and 1/2 years at Holy Family Menai.
