Welcome to The Cathedral of Saint Patrick

Serving the Charlotte Catholic Community for Over 75 Years

The Cathedral of Saint Patrick is the seat of the Roman Catholic Church in Charlotte, North Carolina. It is the mother church of the Diocese of Charlotte, and the seat of its ordinary, Bishop Peter J. Jugis.

St. Patrick Church was built adjacent to the O'Donoghue School in the Dilworth neighborhood.  John Henry Phelan of Beaumont, Texas donated the funds to build St. Patrick's Church in loving memory of his parents, Patrick and Margaret Adele Phelan. Construction of the church began on St. Patrick's Day in 1938.  On Sept. 1, 1939, Bishop Eugene J. McGuinness of Raleigh dedicated the church under the patronage of St. Patrick, and then on Sept. 4, 1939, the church was consecrated. It became the first church in North Carolina to be consecrated immediately upon completion. In 1942, St. Patrick's became a parish. On Jan. 12, 1972, Pope Bl. Paul VI established the Diocese of Charlotte, and St. Patrick's Church was designated as the Cathedral.

The Cathedral of Saint Patrick has been a beacon of faith in the Charlotte community for over 75 years. As a parish, we strive to provide spiritual nourishment, hospitality, and community outreach through a commitment to authentic Catholic teaching, values, and tradition. The Cathedral welcomes everyone to join our parish community for worship, fellowship and prayer.
