St. Patrick Church is a Roman Catholic church in Bridgeport, Connecticut, part of the Diocese of Bridgeport.

History[edit]

St. Patrick Church is first Catholic church in the North End of Bridgeport. The immense church makes quite an impression on unsuspecting motorists traveling on the Interstate highway close by; the parish was formed from the third division of the parish of St. Augustine's Cathedral.

Building[edit]

After the parish's founding, masses were held for many years in a basement church designed by James Murphy or Providence, RI. Around 1910, the massive superstructure was added by Dwyer and McMahon of Hartford, CT.[1]
