Welcome to St. Patrick Catholic Church and School
Our mission statement is: "A welcoming Catholic Community seeking to expand its traditions through Liturgy." It is here that we interact with one another as we celebrate the Sacraments, especially the Eucharist. As a Christian Family we care for one another. We pray for one another in times of joy and in times of grief and loss, and we grow with one another in faith. Your paricipation in the different ministries here at St. Patrick will help us in our effort to make the Kingdom of God a reality.

ST. PATRICK, Dallas, Est. 1963
On March 17, 1963, Bishop Thomas K. Gorman issued a decree establishing St. Patrick Parish in Lake Highlands section of Dallas. Monsignor Fred J. Mosman was appointed the first pastor. An all-purpose building with classrooms and an auditorium was completed in 1964. The school auditorium served as the parish church from 1964 to 1981. A permanent church was built and the first Mass was offered there on June 11, 1981. A gymnasium and an addition to the school, a parish office building and a rectory were completed in November of 1987. The church worship space went through extensive renovation in 2011.
St. Patrick is an active parish with many organizations and lay involvement. The parochial school has over five hundred students presently enrolled. The worshiping community averages over 2,700 persons each week. Reverend Josef Vollmer-König is the present pastor.
