St. Patrick’s Parish

St Patrick’s dates to 1876.  Originally sharing a building with the parish school, in 1893 the church proper was dedicated at 7th and Washington Streets.  Its first several pastors had distinctly Irish surnames such as Callahan and O’Neill.

On Thanksgiving Day 1969, Mass was celebrated in Spanish for the first time.  Not long afterwards a diocesan priest with missionary experience in Paraguay was assigned as pastor, and henceforth the Mass was celebrated weekly in Spanish.

Today, St Patrick’s is the spiritual home to Catholics from Costa Rica, Cuba, El Salvador, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, and elsewhere.
