Some Background Information

The present church building, designed Antonio Coia, was dedicated on Sunday 8th December 1935 by Bishop Henry Grey Graham (Titular Bishop and Auxiliary of St. Andrews and Edinburgh) and replaced an earlier one opened in 1924 when the parish was founded.


On the 8th December 1995 St Patrick’s marked its diamond jubilee.  Bishop Jone Mone was principal celebrant of the Mass of thanksgiving with Bishop Stephen McGill and many priests.  Until 1925 Greenock with a population of over 80,000 people had only two churches, St Mary’s (1861) and St. Laurence’s (1855).  Since 1924 the parish has had twelve parish priests and many assistants.
