The first St. Patrick’s Church was built by the Haney family who were devout Catholics from Ireland. The first mass was said in 1883 by Fr. Casimir Chirose. Initially, there were only a few people attending but by 1926, the church has become too small for the growing congregation. A second church was built on Ontario Street and Fr. Michele became the first resident priest. In 1952, the congregation once again outgrew their church. Under the direction of Fr. Steele, a third church was constructed in its current location on 121st Avenue.
St. Patrick’s Elementary School was built on the church property in 1954 and opened in 1956 to serve the growing needs of the Catholic community. This was followed in 1962 by the building of a convent which later became the Fr. Verrall Center. It was not until 1975 that the addition of the gym was accomplished. In 1998, St. Patrick’s became one of the feeder parishes that built Archbishop Carney Regional Secondary School in Port Coquitlam.
