We are a faith community of over 800 families and part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Victoria. The parish was created in 1912 under the patronage of Our Lady of Lourdes. Our present church, dedicated to Saint Patrick was completed in 1960 and the Parish Centre and St. Clare Villa, a life-lease residence for seniors, were added in 1999.

St Patrick's School, which opened in 1956 provides Kindergarten through Grade 7 and emphasizes both the academic and spiritual development of our students.
