St. Patrick's Church of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn



St Patrick's Church, Brooklyn

St. Patrick's church is a christian Roman Catholic church standing within one of the busiest avenues in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. St. Patrick Mission was founded in 1849, it was also the Parish of the Catholic soldiers assigned to the Fort Hamilton. The first church building was dedicated on December 12th, 1852. The men of the Fort - especially the Irish among them - voluntarily contributed one dollar a week toward their new church. That was a huge sum in those days. This money was set aside and helped in the construction of a church building.
