Category:St. Patrick Church (Columbus, Ohio)

English: Built in 1852 and dedicated a year later, St. Patrick Church is the second oldest Roman Catholic Church in Columbus, Ohio. Founded as the English speaking parish, this church of Norman Gothic design served as the home for three future bishops. Located on Naghten Street, the "Irish Broadway" of the nineteenth century, St. Patrick's parish provided a vital place for the acculturation of the neighborhood Irish immigrants into mainstream American society. The Irish heritage is remembered through the shamrocks that emblazon the heads of each pew. Severely damaged by "the Great Fire" in 1935, the church was quickly restored and serves today as a vibrant religious center for central Ohio. The Dominican Fathers have staffed St. Patrick Church since 1885.
