About Us

St. Patrick Catholic Church is the oldest Catholic Church in greater Portland. Built in 1889 at the corner of NW 19th Avenue and NW Raleigh Street, St. Patrick’s lies just beneath the Fremont Bridge at the edge of the Pearl district in northwest Portland. Our parish is richly diverse, from older Croatian families with roots in northwest Portland, to younger Latino families coming from the outer reaches of Portland and Vancouver, to young professionals who live just blocks from the church. From such diversity, we endeavor to be a united community where people can deepen their relationship with Christ and build true friendships based on the faith. Please join us for our Sunday Masses, which are at 8:30am in Spanish and 10:30am in English. For additional information or to seek additional services, contact us 503-222-4086 or via email at office@stpatrickpdx.org.
