About Our Parish

 

St. Patrick’s is uniquely a sign of God’s loving presence.

It was here when the miners left for the gold country, it served the Irish immigrants, withstood the great fire and earthquake of 1906, continued to serve the Irish, then the Spanish-speaking, now the Filipino community, the numerous tourists and conventioneers and always the business world by which it is surrounded.  Unchanged in the midst of change, it still repeats for all the message of Him who is the resurrection and the life.

St. Patrick Church’s elegant architecture is accented by the Irish national colors, green Connemara marble, and white and gold Botticino marble.  Each of the patron saints of the thirty-two counties of Ireland is proudly showcased on the Tiffany-style stained-glass windows, which also depict the rich heritage and traditions of the Irish.
