As small acorns develop into large oaks, Saint Patrick Parish has developed and matured since its humble beginnings in 1779. We have not only experienced dynamic growth in numbers of parishioners, but also continue to be transformed and empowered by the Holy Spirit. Our hope is to have something to offer everyone in the parish which will help them deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church.
For many wonderful reasons the greater Carlisle area hosts many guests, visitors and tourists. No matter whether you are visiting us for a brief time, or making your home here as a parishioner we hope that you will feel most welcome in our parish. We encourage all faithful to participate in our parish life to the full extent of what their circumstances allow - in attendance of Mass on Sundays and Holy Days, in the reception of the sacraments of reconciliation and the Holy Eucharist, and also in the educational, social and service-oriented ministries.
