York Things to Do: 69 reviews and 134 photos


This is one of the more architecturally significant buildings in York The Church was designed by Reverend Patrick Gibney and built in a Gothic revival style using local stone. The foundation stone was laid on St Patricks day in 1875 and the building was completed in 1886. The windows were imported from Italy. The original Catholic Church began in 1859 and was dedicated to St. Patrick in 1860. It still stands today and is now used as the church hall. During the 1968 earthquake the church was severely damaged and it took almost 20 years for the restoration to be completed.
