St. Patrick Church in Coalton Celebrates 100 Years
St. Patrick Parish celebrated 100 Years with a special mass on Sunday, October 28, 2018. The mass was celebrated by Father Jim and 5 other priests. After the mass concluded, a group picture was taken of all the parishioners and guests who attended. Then everyone enjoyed a delicious catered dinner in the Fellowship Hall next door where they also shared memories, watched a video slide show of pictures from over the years, and listened to Father Jim read a history of the church and showed an altar cloth from the church's past.
The history of St. Patrick Church can be traced back to 1858 to 1859 when the Irish Catholic settlers first came into this section of Randolph County to settle down with their families and establish a life among the hills of West Virginia. After building their homes, they made plans for a Catholic Church and securing a priest to minister to their spiritual needs and celebrate the Sacraments. St. Patrick Church and Parish grew from this humble beginning.
St. Patrick Parish now looks forward to its next 100 years!
