History of Saint Patrick Parish

Saint Patrick Parish has been the heart of Catholic family and parish life in Lucan and area from before Canada became a country and Ontario was a province. For the past 180 years it has been the new spiritual home for immigrants hoping for a better life.

Irish immigrants, fleeing the Great Famine settled in the 1840’s many along the Roman road that the church is situated on.

In 1850 a log church was built, and the cemetery was consecrated. Father Peter Francis Crinnon became the first resident pastor in 1854. The current brick church, built in the Gothic architecture of that era, was completed in 1872. Saint Patrick Parish remains one of the few parish centres in Ontario which still retains all its original buildings: church, school, and rectory.

Almost a century later, in the 1950’s, Saint Patrick Parish became the home for many families coming from post war-torn Europe, from the Netherlands in particular. Drawn together by their Catholic faith, the Irish and Dutch, along with many other nationalities, strengthened the parish in numbers and spirit over the next 70 years.

In 2022, Saint Patrick continues to be the heart of family and parish life for the local community. Lucan Biddulph is one of the fastest-growing areas in the province and the Parish is striving to continue the tradition of offering a new spiritual home and welcoming all newcomers. With the activation of our Family of Parishes with Saint Patrick and Holy Family, we are strengthened and have great hope that Saint Patrick Parish will continue to grow and serve our Lord.
