History and Architecture:

After the original church, that was located in West Terrace became too small it was decided to build a new one in Grote St.  The Foundation stone was laid in November 1912 and the building was completed in 1914.

Constructed of stone and brick, St Patrick's is Classical-neo Baroque in style, based on a Brunelleschi composition. Architecturally important because it is an early design of W H Bagot, an important South Australian architect noted for his attention to architectural history and accuracy of detail.

Organ:

The organ at St. Patrick’s, built by William Dodd in 1900, originally resided at the Hindmarsh Square Congregational Church, but when that church closed they purchased it for St. Patrick’s.
