Old St. Patrick’s Church has stood at the western gateway of Chicago’s Loop for more than 150 years. Built seven generations ago, this old city Church, a treasure born of the immigrant dream, has welcomed hundreds of thousands of people through its doors who seek a deeper, richer experience of life.
Nothing is more important to the mission of Old St. Patrick’s Church than the hospitality extended to each person who crosses our threshold, whether as a first-time visitor or as a member of the Old St. Pat’s community.
We welcome men and women, people of all races and ethnicities, young and old, gay and straight. We welcome rich and poor, searchers and seekers, Catholics and people of other religious traditions. We are gifted by your presence.
Our current generation of members joins with those of the past in striving to build an experience of Church that is genuinely welcoming, mission oriented, and Christ centered. Whatever brings you to Old St. Patrick’s Church, please know that you are always welcome!
