About St. Patrick's Basilica

Saint Patrick's Basilica is the oldest English speaking Catholic parish in Ottawa. It was founded in 1855, although its development goes back much further. Construction of the present Church began in 1868. The original architect was Augustus Laver of the firm Fuller and Laver, architects of the East and West blocks of the Parliament Buildings.

In the long course of constuction, the original plan was changed considerably. In 1872, the cornerstone was blessed by Bishop Guigues, the first bishop of Ottawa, and laid by Sir John A. Macdonald, the first Prime Minister of Canada.

In 1875, the as yet incomplete building was blessed by Archbishop Duhamel and named for the patron saint of Ireland. The Irish have always played an important part in Saint Patrick's parish and most of its pastors have been of Irish Descent.

In the beginning, Saint Patrick's looked after all the English-speaking Catholics in Ottawa and across the river in Hull. Gradually, as the English Catholic population increased, new parishes were established and the territory of Saint Patrick's was reduced. Today it is a downtown parish in a neighbourhood that is more business than residential.

Gothic in style, Saint Patrick's Basilica is made of local stone. It has double aisles and a short transept. It seats a thousand people.

The power of Christian prayer You are...
You are the shade in the heat, You are shelter in the cold, You are eyes to the blind, You are a staff to the pilgrim, You are an island in the sea, You are a stronghold upon land, You are healing to the sick. You are the luck of every joy, You are the light of the sun's beam, You are the door of lordly welcome, You are the pole star of guidance, You are the step of the roe of the height, You are the step of the white-faced mare, You are the grace of the swimming swan, You are the jewel in each mystery.
