All are welcome to join Old St. Patrick’s Church for our Christmas and New Year’s Masses!
The season of Christmas at Old St. Pat’s is a blessed, joyous and beautiful time, and busiest! We are so grateful to all who choose to celebrate with us, and simply would like to share a few reminders, so our time together can be as merry as possible. So, please read through and contact the Old St. Pats staff should you have any questions about our Christmas Mass scheduling.
God bless, and Merry Christmas from all of us at Old St. Pat’s!
Old St. Patrick’s celebrated it’s very first liturgy at Midnight Mass in 1856, making this the 162nd year! For the Christmas Eve Masses, a line will form on the sidewalk in front of church with the Church doors opening at 2 p.m. We will have volunteers providing those waiting with hot chocolate and carolers for entertainment!
To help us offer our very best hospitality, we ask that you please allow yourself ample travel time, entering with your entire party, sitting close together, and refraining from saving seats. Before visiting our parking and travel page for more information on how to get here and where to park, please note that Sunday parking rules will apply for surface lots AND the garage at 625 W. Adams on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. ALL PARKING IS AVAILABLE AND ALL IS FREE. In the garage, please pull a ticket from the Old St. Pat’s box upon entry and use this for validation when you leave.
Also, please do not block any cars in any of the lots. Only park in permitted spaces.
In order to accommodate the number of guests who wish to celebrate with us, we are pleased to offer four simultaneous Christmas Eve liturgies in four locations: Church, Hall, Gym, Cafeteria. Every location is equipped with beautiful music, festive décor and joyful hospitality!
