A “spiritual oasis” in the heart of Sydney since 1844.

Under the care of the Marist Fathers (Society of Mary) since 1868, St Patrick’s Parish in Grosvenor Street, The Rocks, and St Brigid’s in Kent Street, Millers Point, continues to serve the multinational community of Sydney and beyond.

At the beginning of 2017, Michael Whelan SM, Parish Priest, commissioned an icon of St Dimpna who is the patron saint of people in mental and emotional distress – especially those who have been sexually abused. Her feast day is May 15. The icon will form the focus of an annual devotion to St Dimpna each May, with prayers especially for those who are in distress as a result of sexual abuse.  

This year we will commence a special devotion to St Dimpna, beginning with a prayer for her intercession at each Mass from Thursday 10th May through to the Feast day.  The icon of St Dimpna  — blessed by the Archbishop — will be on display within St Patrick’s during those days.

At St Patrick’s there is a marvelous tradition of mercy and reconciliation. We will do everything possible to ensure that tradition continues to grow.

However, that tradition must take account of the changing times. In particular, it must take account of the findings of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. Thus, the Archdiocese of Sydney has established the Safeguarding and Ministerial Integrity Office (SMIO) to assist all Church agencies to be safe environments for all, especially for children and vulnerable people.  For more information please go to the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney website at https://www.sydneycatholic.org/safeguarding-and-child-protection/
