Welcome to our “web-home” with hopes that it will be easy for you to get to know us and make it comfortable for you to visit The Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in real time. The goal is to have our parish accessible and user friendly.
We are the oldest cathedral in the City (200 years!) and located in its most historic area. As we reflect on the past, we like to think of ourselves as a family of people forging a path to the future by helping each other be better disciples of Jesus. We want to create vibrant lives for each and every one through the celebration of the sacraments, community service and social interaction.
This is a tremendous time of grace for the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral. We just celebrated our 200th year as a church serving a diverse and ever-changing population. The Basilica and most of the landmarked buildings in our campus have been restored to as much as possible to their original appearance. More importantly, we pray that we may renew our spiritual lives by using grace-filled opportunities such as the Extraordinary Jubilee Holy Year of Mercy, declared last year by Pope Frances. We are privileged to have “Holy Doors of Mercy” from December 13, 2015 to November 27 located at our sister church, The Shrine Church of the Most Precious Blood.
The Basilica is the place to go for peace and harmony as well as involvement and personal growth. Please enjoy our new web-home but please visit us at Mott & Prince Streets soon and often. God’s mercy is waiting.
Monsignor Donald Sakano
