St. Patrick's - "Old Rock Church"

St. Patrick's Parish was established in 1843 - on the right bank of the Meramec River near Priest Ford.
Construction of the Rock Church was started in 1852, interrupted by the Civil War and completed in 1866.

St. Patrick's Current Preservation Society has cared for St. Patrick's "Old Rock Church" since 1972. As our members grow older we are always in need of new, young help. Please consider making St. Patrick's a part of your family legacy and bring younger members of your family to participate in meetings, masses and picnic events.

Saint Patrick

(flourished 5th century; feast day March 17)

Patron saint of Ireland. Born in Britain of a Romanized family, he was captured at age 16 by Irish raiders and carried into slavery in Ireland. He spent six years as a herdsman before escaping from his master and being reunited with his family in Britain. Called in a dream to bring Christianity to the Irish, he returned to Ireland and journeyed far and wide, baptizing chiefs and kings and converting whole clans. One popular legend says that he explained the notion of the Holy Trinity using the shamrock, now the national flower of Ireland. He is also said to have rid Ireland of snakes.
