St Patrick Catholic Church, located in the heart of Carlsbad, is the foundation of our Catholic Community. Our Roman Catholic Community is part of the Diocese of San Diego in beautiful Southern California. Established in 1943, we are a faith-centered family, serving spiritual and temporal needs by proclaiming the Christian Message of God's love. For over sixty-five years we have been a vital part of the fabric of Carlsbad, helping our parishioners and the community at large.
Our Catholic Community is under the Pastoral Care of priests from the Congregation of Jesus and Mary, better known as the Eudists Fathers. They owe their name to Saint John Eudes who founded the congregation in France in 1643. They share and enliven the life of our parish with their call to Formation and Evangelization.
Share the life of our community, you belong here, because we all belong to Christ.
