|Ownership and History||
St. Patrick’s Church is the home of a Roman Catholic parish founded in 1862. It was the fifth Catholic church established on Staten Island, built at a time when many new immigrants, especially increasing numbers of Irish and German Catholic people, were settling in areas in and around Richmond.
The church building, an example of early Romanesque Revival style, was designated a New York City Landmark in 1968.
