Welcome To St. Patrick Catholic Church

If you come as a visitor, we're sure you'll leave as family!

Welcome to St. Patrick Catholic Church in beautiful and historic Apalachicola, Florida. Apalachicola, an Indian word meaning “Friendly People,” is located at the mouth of the Apalachicola River, separated from the Gulf of Mexico by the Apalachicola Bay and a series of islands which includes St. Vincent, St.George, and Dog Island.

Our parish was established as a mission in 1833 but its first Mass was celebrated by Bishop John Jaurez in 1527 while traveling with the Narvaez Expedition.

We are a community and Christian family, united by our faith in Jesus Christ, our Lord, having been called since baptism to share His mission to spread the Word of God through ministry to one another in a spirit of love and unity.
