About St. Patrick

Welcome to St. Patrick’s 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 Jaures in 1527 while traveling with the Narvaez Expedition.

We have resumed our regular mass schedule and we warmly welcome you back! However if you cannot attend services you can tune into Mediacom Digital Cable Channel 12 or listen to 94.1 on Mediacom radio station every Sunday at 10:00 AM.
