WELCOME TO THE PARISH OF ST PATRICK’S CHURCH HILL

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 on 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.  

The St Dimpna Community gathers in the Crypt each second Saturday of the month at 7.00pm to offer a place of prayerful support especially for those who have been sexually abused and  for anyone with mental or emotional distress.
