Welcome to Old St. Patrick

This historic Roman Catholic Parish in the Diocese of Lansing is the oldest English-speaking Catholic church in the state of Michigan.

We are a parish in Northfield Township seeking to grow in personal holiness by encouraging prayer, spiritual formation, and regular reception of the sacraments.

St. Patrick’s Church  is located a mile and a half south of North Territorial Rd on Whitmore Lake Rd.  The parish offices are located across Northfield Church Rd from the Church. The parish office can be reached at 734-662-8141.

RECONCILIATION LITURGIES

 

These are services where individual Confessions are heard after a “liturgy of the Word” which is simply a couple readings and a short sermon. Therefore you can plan to arrive a bit late if you’d prefer and skip the “Word” liturgy. You can then go straight to the line for Confession.

Tuesday, Mar 24 7pm St. Mary Student Chapel (No 7pm Mass at St Pat’s)
