About Us

St. Patrick’s 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.
