St. Patrick Cathedral

St. Patrick Cathedral

Saint Patrick Cathedral Parish of EI Paso, Texas seeks to live the Gospel of Jesus in community and to bring about the Reign of God.

For a look into local religious culture head to the St. Patrick Cathedral, the official seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of El Paso.

Located in the downtown district, this holy place was designed in the Romanesque Revival architecture type, a 'beautiful expression of Faith' that has become a local landmark and work of art. Construction on the chapel began in 1914 by the St. Louis architectural firm Barnett, Haynes, and Barnett. 1914 is also the year that El Paso was elevated and established as a Diocese by Pope Pius X in general.

The cathedral truly is an uplifting environment for Catholic worship and prayer, so feel free to attend a Mass during your visit. You can also explore the building and see such features as the 1929 stained glass windows, 2500 pipe electric pipe organ, marble altars that are replicas of the ones in St. Louis, and the Chapel of Repose.

Fun fact; this chapel has the distinct privilege of having a canonized saint who was ordained here in 1918, San Pedro de Jesus Maldonado.
